Ohio University’s Chemistry and Biochemistry Colloquium Series presents Dr. Aaron Massari on “Interfacial Vibrational Spectroscopy in Electronic Materials” on Monday, April 8, at 4:10 p.m. in Clippinger 194.

Massari is Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies for Chemical Physics at the University of Minnesota.

The host is Dr. Katherine Cimatu.

Abstract: The interfaces of organic thin films in electronic assemblies play an important role in controlling the flow of electric charges.  For molecular materials, this charge transport is mediated by the packing and orientation of molecules at their interfaces.  In this seminar, I will describe some of the developments from our group in which we use interfacial vibrational spectroscopy (sum frequency generation) to determine the orientation of molecules at electronic interfaces as well as the extent of charge delocalization.
