Measuring molecular orientational dynamics


19Jan2018 12:00 - 13:00

PhD defence ceremony

Michael Donovan presents measurements of molecular orientational dynamics in various systems. These range from the dangling OH of water when it comes into contact with a buried silica interface to the orientational side chain dynamics of hydrophonic leucine residues that point into the air. He presents an experimental and computational methodology for the investigation of interfacial chemistry that involves vibrationally labeling molecules via an infrared pump pulse.
