Stefan Stoll

ChemistryIRG 1Research Faculty

Stefan Stoll is a Professor and the Associate Chair of Research in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Washington. The Stoll Research Group's primary focus is advanced Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, a set of techniques that allows us to measure molecules with unpaired electrons such as organic radicals and transition metal ions and learn about their structure and nano-environment.

Dianne Xiao

ChemistryIRG 1Research Faculty

Dianne Xiao is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry. The Xiao research group develops new strategies to control the structure of porous frameworks and dense coordination solids across multiple length scales, from the molecular to the nano-, meso-, and macroscale. In particular, we are interested in how controlling both the local and long range self-assembly and structure of porous materials can lead to enhanced transport properties, new catalytic activity, and novel emergent behavior.

Kai-Mei Fu

Electrical EngineeringPhysicsIRG 1IRG 1 Co-LeadIRG Leaders

Kai-Mei Fu​ is Associate Professor of Physics and Electrical Engineering at University of Washington.

In the Optical Spintronics and Sensing Lab we study defects in crystals. Defects have historically played an essential role in classical electronic/optical devices. Now new, nanoscale, devices are being developed based on the quantum properties of defects. We are occupied with the following questions:

* What are the fundamental properties of a known defect state? Alternatively, by measuring the properties of an unknown state, can we identify it?
* How can the quantum properties of a defect be engineered and controlled?
* What new technologies can quantum properties of defects enable?
* What new capabilities can be realized through solid-state device integration of defects?

James DeYoreo

ChemistryMaterials Science and EngineeringIRG 1Research Faculty

Jim De Yoreo is an Affiliate Professor of Chemistry and of Materials Science and Engineering. Research in the De Yoreo lab focuses on understanding the pathways and dynamics of nucleation, growth, transformation and self-assembly in synthetic, biomolecular, and geochemical environments. Insights into the underlying mechanisms is obtained by using in situ microscopy and spectroscopy tools to directly probe the organization of atomic, molecular and nanoparticle species.
