Our laboratory studies atomic transport and mass transfer in thin film metal systems and in liquid systems, with particular emphasis on materials for electronics packaging. We use calorimetry to directly monitor the rate of solid state and liquid/solid reactions in thin film systems. Such calorimetric measurements of enthalpy release, along with standard heat capacity studies, provide determinations of thermodynamic functions as a function of temperature. Our goal is to understand and to model the basic mechanisms of these thermal processes.

Our laboratory studies the optical and electronic properties of semiconductors, including quantum structures, plasmonic structures, and dilute magnetic semiconductors.We also look at excitonic matter in condensed matter systems and excitonic Bose-Einstein condensation and Nonlinear optical responses from novel materials, polymers, and photonic crystals.

Our research group's interests involve the study of photo-induced electron and energy transfer processes in inorganic and polymer systems. By combining novel synthetic strategies with modern electrochemical and spectroscopic techniques, we gain a better understanding of fundamental processes which occur in all of chemistry including electron transfer, energy transfer, excited state reactivity, and materials design at a molecular level. The focus of our efforts is the design and study of molecular wires and devices. These nanomaterials provide a foundation for fundamental investigations as well as opportunities for new applied technologies. The projects briefly outlined below fall into three areas under the theme of molecular wires and are supported by grants from NIH, NSF, SRC, NIST, New York State Center for Advanced Technology (IEEC), and industrial partners.
