Description

Our research utilizes a wide range of base vibrational spectroscopic techniques, such as Raman and Infrared for both fundamental and applied methodologies. We are looking to continue research in these areas, as well as extending into more novel optical approaches for the detection of chemical, biological, and energetic materials.

These opportunities include (1) Surface Science—fundamental studies into understanding the physical phenomena that govern the adsorption and interaction of analytes with metallic nanoparticles and nanostructured metallic surfaces; (2) Microfluidics—the design and analysis of detection schemes in the microfluidic realm; (3) Forensic Analysis—utilizing Raman chemical imaging techniques for the trace detection of chemical materials; and (4) Novel vibrational spectroscopic techniques—we have a desire to explore advanced vibrational spectroscopic techniques, including surface-enhanced Raman scattering, Spatially Offset Raman, 2D Raman, Coherent Anti-stokes Raman, hyperspectral imaging, and passive and active infrared techniques.
