Recent advances in manipulating spin-polarized electron currents in atomically engineered magnetic heterostructures make possible entirely new classes of sensor, memory and logic devices - a research field generally referred to as spintronics. A magnetic recording read head, initially formed from a spin-valve, and more recently by a magnetic...

We employ energy, momentum, and time resolved multi-photon photoemission spectroscopy to probe the coherent response of metals at optical frequencies. Although the reflection of light from a metal is considered to be an essentially instantaneous process, photoelectron spectra excited with tunable laser sources are able to select particular...

Using sunlight to facilitate and promote valuable chemical reactions is an ideal solution to the challenge of meeting future energy demands.  Our group aims to address fundamental questions concerning surface plasmon resonance (SPR)-mediated interfacial electron transfer (ET) and photothermal heating in order to develop new materials and...

Steady-state and transient spectroscopic studies are described for plasmonic metal nanorods, gold nanoantenna arrays and atomic layer deposition (ALD) silver films. High aspect ratio nanorods of various metals fabricated by template electrochemical deposition exhibit plasmon bands at long wavelengths, into the mid infrared, and coherent acoustic...
