Research Summary

Our research program focuses on understanding how the chemical structures of molecules and nanoscopic assemblies of molecules, including ligand functionalized nanoparticles, well defined oligomers and liquid crystalline assemblies relate to their electronic and optical properties. We employ a molecular approach in which fundamental structure-property relations are defined through a coordinated synthesis, theory and characterization program. In particular, we seek to develop a fundamental understanding of how to control the interactions of light and matter, and use this understanding to design and synthesize molecules and material for applications in photonics, materials processing, biology, and medicine.
