Physical

Our Physical research covers a wide range of systems. Experimental and theoretical work features nanomaterials and devices, biophysical chemistry, atmospheric and environmental chemistry, the use of high resolution rovibronic spectra to characterize transition states, single molecule and single quantum dot spectroscopy, and condensed phase molecular dynamics.

John C Sheehan Professor of Chemistry

The Ceyer group explores the atomic level dynamics of the interactions of molecules with surfaces of materials that serve as catalysts relevant to energy production and environmental sustainability or as templates for nanodevices.
