Rydberg collaborators

Professor J S Foord
Chemistry Research Laboratory Oxford

The group is concerned with the molecular characterisation and control of properties and chemical processes at the surfaces of new solid-state materials, to enable novel applications in such areas as chemical sensors, biomaterials, smart coatings, catalysis, and nanotechnology.


Professor R G Egdell
Chemistry Research Laboratory Oxford

Our research explores the relationship between the surface properties and electronic structure of metal oxides. We are establishing a major new experimental facility which will allow growth of single crystal thin films of oxides using oxygen plasma assisted molecular beam epitaxy. With this technique we can control the composition of the films we are growing in an atomic layer by atomic layer fashion and prepare compounds with atomic stacking sequences that are not available in any other way.


Professor Dr Frédéric Merkt
ETH Zürich

The Merkt Group investigates the properties of high Rydberg states of atoms and molecules using laser spectroscopy in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV), the extreme ultraviolet (XUV) and the Terahertz (THz) range. It also studies the photoionization of atoms and molecules at high spectral resolution using a variety of multiply resonant photoexcitation schemes. High-resolution photoelectron spectroscopy in various variants is used and continually refined to study the structural and dynamical properties of molecular cations.

The group has a tradition of studying high molecular Rydberg states and explores scientific and technological applications of their unusual properties.
