Spectroscopy and Single Molecules

Home / Graduate Study / Graduate Research / Spectroscopy and Single Molecules

ASU students use the highest resolution spectroscopies, single-molecule fluorescence, scanning probe techniques and high-field NMR to describe and understand fundamental electronic structure, complex materials, the dynamics of biochemical environments and to analyze, sequence and sort complex biopolymers.
