Research

Research in the Kittilstved group is focused on developing synthetic methods to prepare novel inorganic materials for renewable-energy applications and spin-based technologies. The materials we study are primarily inorganic semiconductors and related molecular clusters with unique electronic structures that are

Outreach

Summer 2013: Eureka! scholars from Girls Inc (Holyoke, MA) Some very bright 8th and 9th grade students learned about energy and how to determine the electrical efficiency (or inefficiency) heating water. To learn more about this great program check out

Facilities

To date we have acquired a Cary Eclipse luminescence and photoluminescence spectrophotometer, a Cary 50 UV-Vis absorption spectrophotometer, and a Varian 670 FTIR absorption/emission spectrometer equipped with optional beamsplitters (KBr, NIR Quartz, and UV Quartz), light sources (Mid-IR, tungsten, and
