Using Lasers to Poke at Timescales in Simple and Complex Systems

Professor Brent Koplitz
Department of Chemistry
Tulane University
Chemistry Building, Room 400
Physical Seminar

Since their development in the 1960s, lasers have been used in a myriad of ways to study and influence chemical reactions. In this talk, three topics will be addressed: photodissociation, metallized polymers, and large-cluster reactivity. The role of the laser in probing and altering reaction timescales will be examined.
