Spectroscopy for Single Molecule Chemistry

We are a new research group in the Department of Chemistry at Yale University interested in developing single molecule spectroscopies with structural resolution and applying them to characterize fundamental steps in chemical mechanisms. In doing so, we hope to expand the utility of single molecule techniques from biophysics to chemistry with initial applications in metalloenzymes and organometallic catalysis. More…
