primary focus of our group is the vibrational study of solid-state systems.
While traditional techniques such as Infrared spectroscopy and Resonance
Raman spectroscopy are used, we specialize in Inelastic Neutron Scattering
(INS) Spectroscopy. INS spectroscopy provides the same type of information
as traditional techniques but with certain advantages.
use INS spectroscopy to both complement and test ab initio methods and the
approximations used therein. Typical systems of study are small organic molecules
which possess high symmetry, strained structural features, or unique hydrogen bonding
