Probing the Electronic Structure of Ligand-Protected Metal Nanoclusters Using Atomically-Precise Spectroscopic Methods

Christopher Johnson - Stony Brook University

Christopher Johnson, assistant professor of chemistry at Stony Brook University, leverages multiplexing laser spectroscopy and mass spectrometry to address challenges in energy and the environment. He is particularly interested in resolving the molecular-level mechanisms underlying a broad range of chemical phenomena from new particle formation in the atmosphere to catalytic activity in solution and biofuel combustion, as well as understanding the active role that solvent (particularly water) plays in these reactions.
