Physical chemists at Emory perform experiments and calculations to get at the heart of the structure, reactivity, dynamics, and energetics of matter. From solar cells to cell membranes, we study a variety of systems through precise measurements and advanced calculations. The data produced in our laboratories becomes concepts that shape how chemists see the world and seeds next-generation technologies.
