The collaboration between the Cossairt and Li group at UW produces an ACS Editor’s Choice paper published in Chemistry of Materials.

In this paper we report the conversion of an InP Magic Size Cluster (MSC) to a Cd3P2 MSC through a cation exchange mechanism, and attempt to shed light on the evolution of the physical and electronic structure of these clusters during the transformation. We demonstrate retention of the original InP MSC crystal lattice as Z-type […]

GUGA TD-CI paper is now online

Dynamic electric properties are most commonly determined by applying linear and nonlinear response theory. This is often a sequential process as each order of response depends on the solution for the previous lower order. Response theory is a perturbative approach and is not directly amenable to modeling time-resolved spectroscopies or experiments involving exotic pulse shapes. […]

Plasmon decay paper is now online

A new paper discussing plasmon decay in metal nanoparticles has been published online in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C and can be found here. In this paper, a linear silver chain is chosen as a prototype of silver nanorods. The formation and evolution of transverse (orthogonal to the chain) plasmons has been studied through […]

Contratulations to Lestrange, Goings, and Lingerfelt!

Three graduate students recently defended and have earned their PhDs. Congratulations to Patrick Lestrange, Joshua Goings, and David Lingerfelt. All three began their graduate careers in 2012 and have worked closely together for the last ~5 years. It’s sad to see them go, but we wish them all the best.
