Welcome to the Dynamics Lab of IESLFORTH.

We use photons to investigate problems in the field of Chemistry, focusing on chemical reaction dynamics, analysis using spectroscopy and related methods and technologies.

Current research directions include the dynamics of photodissociation reactions at high excitation energies, the study of photoelectron distributions produced by multiphoton ionization of chiral molecules , the application of spectroscopic techniques in chemical analysis related to energy (fuels, lubricants) and the environment (waste, greenhouse gas monitoring) as well as the development of time-resolved electron diffraction probes for chemistry and materials science.
