We are interested in the properties and reaction dynamics of radicals; in metastable and excited states of molecules; in nonadiabatic processes in reaction, photochemistry and inelastic collision dynamics; in the role of excited states in practical chemical systems such as combustion, atmospheric and interstellar chemistry; and in using emerging experimental techniques to explore new chemistry. We employ complementary universal and state-resolved detection methods in conjunction with molecular beams and velocity map imaging in an effort to obtain a comprehensive view of the chemistry for a given system. In addition to the program at Stony Brook, our effort includes DOE-sponsored research in the Gas Phase Molecular Dynamics group at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
