June 2022: Together with Carlos Baiz's lab, this month our group organized Coherent Multidimensional Spectroscopy 2022, which brought over 150 attendees to Austin from across the US, Europe, and Asia. It was truly an honor to host this meeting and to be able to highlight some of the work that we've been doing here in ATX!
June 2022: Our group's collaborative paper with Jean-Hubert Olivier's group at the University of Miami investigating stapled superstructures of dye aggregates has been accepted by Chemistry of Materials! Congrats are in order for Danielle for her work on this report!
May 2022: I am very happy to announce that our new collaborative paper describing symmetry breaking charge transfer in organic dimers has been published by Accounts of Chemical Research. Congrats to Laura and Danny for their work on this!
April 2022: Congratulations are in order for Danny who successfully defended his thesis! Danny will be heading out in May to start as a postdoctoral research in Jahan Dawlaty's Group at USC. Congrats Dr. Cotton!
April 2022: We are very happy to report that we will soon be receiving new funding from the National Science Foundation to support a new collaboration with the Page Group focused on developing new photocatalysts for 3D printing. Congrats to everyone involved in the efforts to get this project underway!
April 2022: We are pleased to announce that our group will receive a Spark Grant from UT's College of Natural Sciences. This grant will support the purchase of new equipment for time-resolved spectroscopy!
March 2022: It's been a busy week! Sean, Danielle, and Kelly each attended the ACS national meeting in San Diego where they presented some of the group's new work on energy & charge transfer from nanocrystals to molecules and femtosecond transient microscopy!
January 2022: Congrats to Danielle and Emily! Their paper describing how quantum dot ligands can be leveraged to control electron transfer rates has been accepted by the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters! This work represents a collaborative study with the Kilina group at NDSU and Iverson group here at UT. Nice work!
