Can we combine spectroscopy and diffraction in the
study of excited states of molecules in crystals?
Can we accurately map the electron density in a crystal
using X-ray diffraction, and what does this density tell us about chemical
Can we use charge densities to derive
the electrostatic interactions between molecules?
Can we improve time-resolved
diffraction techniques to allow monitoring of chemical reactions on a picosecond
We are developing new methods to answer such
questions, using the equipment in our Buffalo laboratory, as well as
at the Advanced Light Source (APS Chicago, IL, USA) and at the Advanced Ring in
Tsukuba, Japan. The following pages will give information
on our recent publications, equipment in the laboratory and at the synchrotron
and on the members of our research group. For further information,
