The Single Molecule Detection and Spectroscopy Effort @BNL
Our group investigates charge and energy transfer in
functional hybrid nanomaterials with potential utilization in solar energy conversion, plasmonics and biosensing.
We use (self)assembly methods to control such photoinduced processes in order to
obtain hybrid nanomaterials with tunable optoelectronic behavior. Most of our
studies are based on time-resolved single molecule/particle methods.
The Single Molecule Spectroscopy effort at Brookhaven
National Laboratory is led by
Mircea Cotlet, and
SoftNanoBio theme (team leader Oleg Gang) of the
Center for Functional Nanomaterials
(director Emilio Mendez).
We provide instrumentation and expertise in
advanced optical microscopy characterization, including single molecule methods
through the CFN user program. Please feel free
to navigate our website to learn about our research,
instrumentation available within the user program and how to become a user
of our Advanced Optical Microscopy facility.
