New article by undergraduate student Rachel Morin

Former UMBC physics major Rachel Morin (currently a Ph.D. student at the Catholic University of America) is the first author of a recently published article based on research she did as an undergraduate researcher in Dr. Pelton’s research group. In this paper, published as part of The Journal of Physical Chemistry 125th-anniversary virtual special issue, Morin, Pelton, and their collaborators at NIST and Argonne National Laboratory report measurements of electron transfer from single rod-shaped semiconductor nanocrystals to single molecules adsorbed on the nanorod surfaces. They showed that the measured distribution of electron-transfer rates can be used to probe the electron wavefunctions involved in electron transfer from the nanorods.
