Optical rotary dispersion


The research theme in our group is investigation of chemical structure and dynamics using physical methods. We study both fundamental gas-phase processes and complex condensed-phase systems. Current areas of interest are laser-induced nucleation and polarization spectroscopy.

Crystals in a flash
The image above shows spatial control of crystallization by laser-induced nucleation. The crystals are of KCl formed in an agarose gel.
