The Butler Group uses state-of-the-art molecular beam and velocity map imaging techniques in conjunction with theoretical modeling to investigate the dynamics of chemical reactions. We are particularly interested in reactions involving open-shell species that are important in combustion and atmospheric chemistry. Our studies develop physical insight into the evolution of nuclear and electronic dynamics during chemical reactions, and benchmark emerging electronic structure methods.
