Robert Thompson
OCP optical characterization Undergraduate

Prof. Andrea Markelz
Principal investigator for the group. We have two main lines of research: protein dynamics and collective electronic excitations. We study these phenomena with THz light and molecular dynamics simulation. amarkelz's picture Principal Investigator

Yanting Deng
My work is on developing techniques to measure the intramolecular vibrations of proteins. I am applying these techniques to photoactive proteins: photoactive yellow protein, orange carotenoid protein and FMO. Our measurements use anisotropic THz near field microscopy based on femtosecond lasers to create and detect the THz light yantingd's picture Recent PhD graduates
