Thomas R. Dyke

Professor Emeritus — Physical Chemistry & Chemical Physics

B.A., College of Wooster, 1966. Ph.D., Harvard University, 1972 (William Klemperer). Postdoctoral: University of Rochester, 1971–74 (John Muenter). Honors and Awards: Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow, 1977–79; Fulbright Senior Scholar, Oxford University, 1984–85. At Oregon since 1974.

Principal Research Interests:

My research concerns various forms of spectroscopy in the frequency domain and time domain. A long-standing interest has been the study of intermolecular forces through structure studies of molecular clusters in molecular beam environments. A more recent interest involves studying dynamics in molecular systems utilizing time-domain and frequency-domain experiments.
