May 2021: Words of welcome are in order for undergraduate Jess Tanner Boette who will be carrying out research on new chromophores for triplet fusion this summer.
April 2021: Emily successfully defends her thesis work! Congratulations are in order for the newest Roberts group PhD! Emily will be starting a new position as a postdoc with Dr. Matthew Beard at NREL. Congrats Dr. Raulerson!
April 2021: New work on triplet energy transfer! A new paper from our group looking at triplet energy transfer from Silicon Quantum Dots to Perylene was just accepted by Chemical Science! This paper is the latest in a collaborative project with the Tang and Mangolini groups at UC Riverside focused on designing nanocrystal systems for photon upconversion.
March 2021: Congratulations are in order for Danielle as she has been awarded a 2021 NSF GRFP Fellowship! Awesome work Danielle!
March 2021: Danny's paper modeling spectral interference in Sum Frequency Generation lineshapes was just published by J. Chem. Phys. Nice work Danny!
February 2021: Welcomes are in order for new undergraduates Eden Chen and Shoshannah Isom! Eden will be working with Danny to compute properties of candidate molecules for singlet fission and Shoshannah will be working with Danielle to synthesize quantum dots.
January 2021: New postdocs Laura Estergreen and Kelly Wilson join the group! Laura and Kelly will be working jointly with the Baiz lab to assemble a new transient absorption microscope funded by a MRI grant by the National Science Foundation. Welcome to Texas!
August 2020: The group officially joins the Center for Dynamics and Control of Materials via their seed grant program. This award will support the group's work investigating singlet fission materials for quantum information applications!
