Areas of Specialization

Research in the Kidwell group applies laser-based techniques to explore reactive processes at a fundamental level in order to address atmospheric and physical chemistry problems.  Specifically, we study the photochemistry and bimolecular reactivity of neutral molecules, reactive intermediates, and molecular clusters using laser spectroscopy and imaging methods accompanied by high-level theory and reaction modeling.  Our experimental measurements provide important benchmarks for theoretical studies in order to determine detailed mechanisms, which are necessary for predictive atmospheric chemistry modeling.
