About the Research

The group focuses on the study of sub-picosecond (10^{{-12}} seconds) dynamics of complex systems. Specifically, we utilize time-domain THz, optical pump-probe techniques, and time-resolved x-ray spectroscopies to study the dynamics of thin films and biomaterials.

Upcoming Talks

  • Matthew DeCamp Department of Physics and Astronomy Colloquium September 12, 2012
  • Matthew DeCamp and Yuan Gao Optical Society of America Annual Meeting, Rochester NY (2012)
