Research Interests
The Camden group is working to develop new applications of plasmonic nanostructures and to understand fundamental features of the molecule-plasmon couplings. The group also studies:  Surface-Enhanced Nonlinear Spectroscopy, Mapping Plasmon Modes, and Hypervelocity Reaction Dynamics: Chemistry in Extreme Environments.  The Camden group is also exploring the structural and optical properties of the nanoparticles involved in the observation of a SMSERS - Single-Molecule SERS.
