  • Department of Chemistry

    University of Pittsburgh

  • Mani L. Bhaumik Centennial Collaboratory 607 Charles E. Young Dr., East, Los Angeles
  • Prof. Waldeck Flyer Adventures with Chiral Induced Spin Selectivity Abstract: Abstract: Since Louis Pasteur, chemists have been fascinated by chirality, however its connection with electron spin was not realized until the 21st century and its implications for chemistry and biochemistry is only beginning to be revealed. I will discuss chiral induced spin selectivity (CISS), which…

    University of California, Los Angeles

  • Mani L. Bhaumik Centennial Collaboratory 607 Charles E. Young Dr., East, Los Angeles
  • Prof. Caram Flyer Exploring the Extremes of Excitonic Photophysics Abstract: We investigate the chemical physics that underpins "extreme" excitonic photophysics -- materials with infrared electronic absorption, long-range exciton delocalization/transport, unusually narrow linewidths, and quantum functionality. In this talk, I will describe two emerging themes in my group's effort; the design of materials with mesoscale excitonic properties, and…
