New Paper on Hot Carrier Cooling

Check out Caitlin’s new paper in J. Phys. Chem. Lett.! In collaboration with the experimental groups of Warren Beck (Michigan St.) and Greg Van Patten (Middle Tennessee St.), we shed light on the complex ligand motions that lead to hot carrier cooling in CdSe quantum dots. This is our first foray into hot carrier cooling, and work continues to determines how the structure of the surface ligands determine the cooling rate. Nice work, Caitlin!

Welcome, Alex!

The Levine group is very pleased to welcome new postdoc Alex Teplukhin to the group. Alex earned his PhD at Marquette University working with Dmitri Babakov. He joins us after doing a postdoc at Los Alamos with Brian Kendrick. Welcome, Alex!

Welcome, Kenneth!

We are very excited to welcome Kenneth Berard, a Chemistry graduate student, to the group! Kenneth completed BS in Chemistry at University of Rhode Island (with minors in Physics and Math). Welcome aboard, Kenneth!

Congrats, Gabriella!

Congratulations, Gabriella Albanese, on completing her honors thesis work in our group and graduating with her bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. Nice work, Gabriella!
