Ultrafast Multidimensional Spectroscopy Group

The Hunt group is committed to multidisciplinary work, specifically in the area of Physics and the Life Sciences (PaLS) and is primarily interested in applications of ultrafast 2D-IR spectroscopy to understand the fundamental processes that underpin biological processes and the chemical physics of solution-phase reactions. By combining 2D-IR spectroscopy with more traditional time-resolved infrared-based methods we aim to follow biological and chemical processes in real time.

The Ultrafast spectroscopy group is a member of the multidisciplinary BioMolecular Dynamics consortium and we contribute to the Bionanotechnology theme in the Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre


Specific projects include:

– The 2nd International Workshop in Ultrafast Chemical Physics

was held at Strathclyde from 14-16 Dec 2011

About us – The Multidimensional Spectroscopy group currently consists of around 9 people and has obtained in excess of £2.4M of grant funding from a range of sources (EPSRC, ERC, STFC). NTH currently holds a European Research Council Starting Investigator grant and research grants from the STFC and Leverhulme Trust.

The lab – Our group occupies a recently-renovated suite of labs funded in part by an S&I grant and the University. It consists of a three-section laser lab, prep lab and instrument lab as well as a conference area – see some photos here.
