September 2021: Our new paper examining triplet fusion upconversion in blended quantum dot:organic solids in collaboration with the Tang group is accepted by RSC Advances. Nice work everyone!
August 2021: Danny and Sean both give hybrid presentations at the National ACS Meeting in Atlanta to socially distanced audiences. It's great to have a chance to interact with the larger scientific community!
August 2021: We are very excited to announce that the group will be a founding member of the Center for Adapting Flaws into Features (CAFF), a NSF Phase 1 CCI based out of Rice University. You can learn more about the center via UT's Press Release.
July 2021: Congrats are in order for Alex Freistman and Kelly Biv who joined our lab this summer via the CDCM REU program. Alex and Kelly gave a fantastic presentation summarizing their work to develop a kinetic Monte Carlo model for describing exciton migration in singlet fission materials.
July 2021: Congrats are in order for the group as Sean has been appointed as a Faculty Fellow of the William H. Wade Endowed Professorship in Chemistry! This honor speaks to the hard work each member of our group has brought to their projects since the start of our group.
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 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!
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!
