"Vibrational predissociation spectroscopy of Ar-tagged, trisubstituted silyl cations" by Andrew F. DeBlase, et. al. is selected as an editors choice in Chem. Phys. Lett.
After a year of troubleshooting, our 7T Bruker ICR is functional once again, collecting high resolution spectra of electrosprayed organometallic catalysts and macromolecules.
Andrew DeBlase gives a hot topic talk at the Gordon Research Conference on Gaseous Ions in Galveston, TX: "A Bottom Up Approach to the Zundel Continuum: 3rd Order Anharmonic Treatment of Shared Proton Spectra"
Remarks by Professor Johnson featured in the February 25th edition of the C&E News article "Why SN2 Reactions Don't Work in Water"
Professor Johnson will be giving the plenary talk at the German Physical Society meeting in Hannover in March. We have recently added numerous experimental capabilities to the laboratory, including a new cryo-ESI source, two new Surelite EX pump lasers, and a visible laser for electronic spectroscopy interrogation. J. Robert Roscioli has taken a position at Aerodyne Research in Boston, MA.
Alexander Esser, a graduate student in Martina Havenith's laboratory at Ruhr-University Bochum, has begun a two month visit to our group to collaborate and further our characterization of cryogenic ions.
Arron Wolk is awarded the 2012 T. F. Cooke Teaching Award.
Arron Wolk has been awarded the Rao Prize for his talk entitled "Isolation of Ion-Driven Conformations in Diphenylacetylene Molecular Switches using Cryogenic Infrared Spectroscopy" at the 2012 International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy.
We have moved next door to a impressively laid out new office in SCL 9.
Our latest manuscript, "Characterization of an activated iridium water splitting catalyst using infrared photodissociation of H2 tagged ions" has been published in PCCP.
Professor Johnson will be giving the Keynote Lecture at the 2012 Vibrational Spectroscopy Gordon conference, with a talk titled "Structural analysis of reaction intermediates with cryogenic ion spectroscopy."
Four Johnson group members gave talks at the 2012 Ohio State International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy, on topics ranging from metal hydroxide water clusters to IR-IR double resonance spectra of dipeptides.
Our article "Vibrational Fano Resonances in Dipole-Bound Anions" has been identified as one of the top 20 read articles in the Journal of Chemical Physics in May 2012.
