The interest in optics and molecular spectroscopy at Oregon is unusually broad, reflecting the strong interdisciplinary emphasis of the chemistry department. Individual research programs span chemical systems from diatomic molecules to DNA and optical sources from microwaves to high-power lasers. Ongoing work includes theoretical and experimental work on spectroscopy of molecules at liquid surfaces and interfaces, spectroscopy of small molecules, studies of van der Waals clusters and molecules in solution, nonlinear optical properties of surfaces and interfaces, picosecond studies of photocarrier dynamics in photovoltaic materials and spatially-resolved spectroscopy of individual molecules and nano-scale materials.
