The research in Professor Hartland's laboratory involves using optics to examine the properties of nanomaterials. Current emphasis is on single particle experiments, both steady state spectroscopy studies and time-resolved measurements. Some specific topics of interest are:
(i) Effect of size, shape and composition on the properties of nanomaterials.
(ii) Development and application of novel optical imaging techniques.
(iii) Ultrafast studies of energy and charge flow in nanostructures and thin films.
