Andrew Rappe's Research Featured

A multidisciplinary team led by Andrew Rappe has discovered a way to control UV light production through a chemical reaction that functions like a light switch. According to Rappe, this is the first report of the introduction of molecules to the surface controlling the emission of light from a buried solid-surface interface. The research was highlighted as a featured paper by the US Department of Energy. The full paper can be found here.
