Postdoctoral position in experimental physical chemistry at Minnesota
A postdoctoral position in experimental physical chemistry / chemical physics is available in Professor Doreen Leopold's group in the Chemistry Department at the University of Minnesota. The goal of this project is to study the bonding and reactivities of small transition metal clusters. These will be prepared in a flow tube and reacted with simple organic molecules. Mass-selected bare metal clusters and organometallic reaction products will be studied by vibrationally-resolved anion photoelectron spectroscopy. The spectra will provide measurements of electron affinities, electronic state energies and vibrational frequencies of the neutral and anionic species. Computational studies will also be performed to assist in the analysis of the data.
These experiments will yield spectroscopic information for organometallic radicals that may serve as models for intermediates in the reactions of transition metal catalysts, and will help to elucidate structure-reactivity relationships. In addition, these studies of small, well-defined clusters will provide experimental benchmarks to aid other researchers in developing improved computational methods to treat larger metal nanosystems of more direct technological relevance.
A strong background in each of the following three areas is preferred:
• ion beam, molecular beam, surface chemistry, or other high vacuum techniques
• molecular spectroscopy
• computational chemistry
This position is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation and is available immediately. Students planning to complete their Ph.D. degrees this spring or summer are also encouraged to apply. The position is initially for one year and is renewable for up to two more years. The budgeted salary is $38,000 for the first year, and the position also includes health benefits. If planning an academic career at the college or university level, our postdoc will be encouraged to gain teaching experience through participation in our Department's novel MPACT program (Mentorship Program for Aspiring Chemistry Teachers).
Potential candidates are invited to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. Please include a cv and a description of your research experience, interests, and future career plans.

|Hummingbird EMCCD camera
The digital Hummingbird EMCCD camera combines high sensitivity, speed and high resolution.
It uses Texas Instruments' 1MegaPixel Frame Transfer Impactron device which provides QE up to 65%.
Hummingbird comes with a standard CameraLink output.
It is the smallest and most rugged 1MP EMCCD camera in the world.
It is ideally suited for any low imaging application such as hyperspectral imaging, X-ray imaging, Astronomy and low light surveillance.
It is small, lightweight, low power and is therefore the ideal camera for OEM and integrators.
femtosecond transient absorption data acquisition system
Future nanostructures and biological nanosystems will take advantage not only of the small dimensions of the objects but of the specific way of interaction between nano-objects. The interactions of building blocks within these nanosystems will be studied and optimized on the femtosecond time scale - says Sergey Egorov, President and CEO of Del Mar Photonics, Inc. Thus we put a lot of our efforts and resources into the development of new Ultrafast Dynamics Tools such as our Femtosecond Transient Absorption Measurements system Hatteras. Whether you want to create a new photovoltaic system that will efficiently convert photon energy in charge separation, or build a molecular complex that will dump photon energy into local heat to kill cancer cells, or create a new fluorescent probe for FRET microscopy, understanding of internal dynamics on femtosecond time scale is utterly important and requires advanced measurement techniques.

Mar Photonics offers new
Trestles fs/CW laser system which can be easily
switched from femtosecond mode to CW and back. Having both modes of operation in one system dramatically increase a
number of applications that the laser can be used for, and makes it an ideal
tool for scientific lab involved in multiple research projects.
Frequency-stabilized CW single-frequency ring Dye laser DYE-SF-007 pumped by DPSS DMPLH laser installed in the brand new group of Dr. Dajun Wang at the The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
DYE-SF-077 features exceptionally narrow generation line width, which amounts to less than 100 kHz. DYE-SF-077 sets new standard for generation line width of commercial lasers. Prior to this model, the narrowest line-width of commercial dye lasers was as broad as 500 kHz - 1 MHz. It is necessary to note that the 100-kHz line-width is achieved in DYE-SF-077 without the use of an acousto-optical modulator, which, as a rule, complicates the design and introduces additional losses. A specially designed ultra-fast PZT is used for efficient suppression of radiation frequency fluctuations in a broad frequency range. DYE-SF-077 will be used in resaerch of Ultracold polar molecules, Bose-Einstein condensate and quantum degenerate Fermi gas and High resolution spectroscopy
