Physical & Theoretical Chemistry

Research in theoretical and experimental physical chemistry includes ultrafast study of reaction dynamics, photoacoustics, applications of chemical physics to medical imaging, novel spectroscopic methods, computational chemistry, quantum chemistry, and molecular interaction in liquids. 

The heart of Brown’s experimental research in physical chemistry is the use of multiple ultrashort-pulsed laser systems, allowing ultrafast time-resolved methods for electron diffraction, spectroscopy, and x-ray absorption.
