Welcome to the Krummel Research Group


Group Mid 2018


Our work focuses on elucidating the molecular level details that drive nano- to microscopic properties in condensed phase systems. We exploit the structural and temporal resolution of linear and nonlinear spectroscopic methods such as Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), two-dimensional infrared (2D IR), sum frequency generation (SFG), and transient absorption (TA) to address questions regarding the structure and dynamics of molecular systems in energy-related devices. Our group currently studies the molecular systems of battery electrolytes, ionic liquids, electrode surfaces, dye-sensitized solar cells, and photoelectrochemical cells. In addition, we continue to add to the development of pulse-shaping in the mid-IR and microfluidic device technology with the goal of producing new tools for multidimensional optical spectroscopies.
