This program leverages steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopies, as well as photothermal methods to understand mechanisms involving energy transfer, redox, and chemical transformation (i.e. bond-breaking and bond-forming) occurring on the nanosecond to millisecond time scales. Research will involve the development of new functional materials for a variety of Navy relevant problems such as clean energy production (e.g. fuel cells, energy storage devices, electrolyzers, etc), water treatment technologies, photo- and electrocatalysis, plasmonics, etc. Successful candidates should have experience in steady-state and time-resolved photochemistry/photophysics with additional experience in any of the following disciplines: organic/inorganic synthesis and characterization, materials chemistry, electrochemistry. The facilities at the Naval Research Laboratory provides candidates with access to a variety of methodologies including steady-state spectroscopies (UV-vis, fluorescence, IR, Raman), electrochemistry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, NMR, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, electron microscopies, porosometry, thermal gravimetry analysis, and more.
