will be presenting 
"Nonlinear and Ultrafast Spectroscopy of Colloidal Plasmonic Nanoparticles"

Abstract:

Hybrid plasmonic colloidal nanoparticles and their interactions with biological molecules, dye molecules, and light are investigated using nonlinear and ultrafast spectroscopy. The photocleaving dynamics of microRNA-functionalized plasmonic nanoparticles in colloidal suspension in water are monitored using time-dependent second harmonic generation (...

Assistant Professor, Department of Materials Science & Engineering
will be presenting 
"Simple Solutions for (and from) Materials Chemistry” 

Abstract:

In this seminar, I will discuss the apparent correlation between impact – whether academic, technological, or scientific – and simple solutions. While defining “simplicity” is a notoriously poorly defined problem that is maybe more suited to philosophy than science, defining “simple solutions” can be, we contend, done effectively and more...

Nanoscale Science - Faculty in Focus

Welcome to the Walter Research Group in the Chemistry Department at UNC Charlotte. We are interested in the synthesis and development of new materials for Solar Energy Conversion. Photoactive materials such as porphyrins are developed in our lab can be used to harvest solar photons and convert that energy into either electricity or into a fuel such as hydrogen. Our work involves testing these materials in organic solar cell, dye-sensitized TiO2 solar cell, or photoelectrochemical cell configurations. Our work spans materials research, organic syntheses, and nanoscience.
