Physical chemistry

Physical chemistry research at the Department of Chemistry is divided into three main areas:

  • Ultrafast laser spectroscopy of chemical reaction dynamics, development of fibre lasers and supercontinuum sources and laser control and manipulation of molecules and mesoscopic particles
  • Oxygen microscopy and imaging that focuses on developing tools and methods to create dynamic (singlet) oxygen-based images of heterogeneous samples ranging from industrially important polymers to biological cells
  • Physical Chemistry of soft condensed matter focusing on studies of the structure and thermodynamics of polymers, block copolymers and surfactants in solution
