The Engel Group strives to understand, characterize, and, ultimately, control electronic dynamics. We take our inspiration from biological systems such as photosynthetic complexes and photoenzymes, which control electronic dynamics with enviable precision. We use femtosecond spectrometers of our own design to help us engineer excited-state dynamics to transfer energy efficiently and to perform chemical transformations.
