Abe Nitzan

Abe Nitzan and his research group are developing models that may better harness heat energy to potentially power nanoscale devices. Their recent work, featured in PNAS earlier this year, has been highlighted by Ali Sundermier at Penn News.

Professor Andrew Rappe

A new paper in the journal Nature by Chemistry Professor Andrew Rappe and his group is shedding light on the use of smart materials in ultrasound technology. The Rappe group is studying the piezoelectric properties of these materials to identify how they interact with energy.

Chemistry Assistant Professor Jessica Anna

A new paper in the Journal of the American Chemical Society authored by Chemistry Assistant Professor Jessica Anna and her research group describes the use of innovative multi-dimensional spectroscopy methods to follow the flow of energy through the pigments of photosystem I, the light harvesting protein at the heart of photosynthesis. These studies can enable a better understanding of natural photosynthesis and guide the design of artificial light-harvesting systems. Read it here.
