Project Overview

Understanding Intermolecular Interactions through Vibrational Nano-Spectoscopy

Faculty Sponsor

Eric Muller (




Chemical and physical properties or biological function of molecules are determined by interactions between neighboring molecules. The Muller lab aims to understand the structure-function relationship through nano-imaging and nano-spectroscopy at the fundamental length scales of intermolecular interactions. Students will work both individually and collaboratively on projects involving laser spectroscopy, nansocale manipulation, computer modeling, data analysis, and sample fabrication.
