Imaging Excited Orbitals with STM

Working with Prof. Martin Gruebele at the University of Illinois, we showed that it is possible to capture nanometer resolution images of electronically excited PbS quantum dots, using a combination of single molecule absorption and scanning tunneling microscopy (SMA-STM). Usually STM can only image ground state electron density. Transient or steady-state absorption spectroscopy can access […]

Two by Two: New papers on two-component methods are now online

The group has recently been investigating non-collinear two-component methods and two new publications in this area are now online. This is an exciting direction for the group that allows us to model phenomena that is impossible to capture with collinear methods such as restricted and unrestricted Hartree-Fock and DFT. One paper focuses on the linear […]
