Physical and theoretical chemistry provides a quantitative framework for understanding and appreciating molecules and molecular systems. These can be as simple as a collection of rare gas atoms or as complex as DNA. Studies allow insight into the static, dynamical, and chemical properties of these systems, and can be extended to gases, liquids and solids. Responses of these systems to change, such as the absorption of a photon, can only be gained using advanced experimental or computational methods. Our research covers a broad range of sub-disciplines, including electrochemistry, surface and materials science, computational and quantum chemistry, laser spectroscopy, solid-state NMR, cluster science and molecular astrophysics. Within each of these areas, Nottingham has made major contributions, both in terms of our knowledge of basic processes and in the development of advanced instrumentation and computational techniques.
This research is undertaken with access to state-of-the-art facilities. Current equipment includes a wide range of vacuum systems for surface, synchrotron, photoionisation, and cluster beam experiments, tuneable UV, visible and infrared lasers, ion traps, solid-state NMR spectrometers, mass spectrometers, and advanced computational facilities including the University's high performance computer.
