Research summary

Detailed studies of the UV photochemistry and photophysics of isolated gas phase molecules using a variety of state-of-the-art laser based techniques including H atom photofragment translational spectroscopy and velocity map ion imaging. Current activities involve extension of these methods to allow study of larger, less volatile (bio)molecules in the gas phase, and the development and use of ultrafast time-resolved pump-probe methods to explore the photophysics of such molecules in solution.

Growth and characterisation of diamond thin films grown by chemical vapour deposition (CVD). Current interest centres on exploring the gas phase and gas-surface chemistry that underpins CVD of diamond ...
