Our group studies the ultrafast dynamics of excited states in nature-inspired molecules using gas-phase time resolved ion yield and velocity map ion imaging spectroscopies along with solution-phase transient electronic and vibrational absorption spectroscopies.
Team Stavros hosts the Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group Meeting 2020
The annual RSC Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group (SDG) Meeting was held at Warwick between the 6th and the 8th of January 2020. This was, as it always is, an excellent conference where the spectroscopy community gets to meet and share their recent discoveries. The legendary SDG quiz also took place after the conference dinner and included a practical round to keep the tradition for Warwick-led SDG quizes!
IAS Residential Fellows visit the Stavros Group from Lisbon
During the week of the 14th to the 18th of October, Nat hosted Prof. Manuel Prieto and Prof. Berberan-Santos from the Instituto Superior Técnico of Lisbon, who visited Warwick thanks to an IAS Residential Fellowship. The week consisted many talks, tutorials, meetings and experiments on new collaborative research on organic LEDs. And, of course, a trip to our favourite Afghani restaurant! It was a pleasure to welcome our visitors and we hope to meet them again soon.
Mitch and Emily make the mainstream media!
Following a recent publication in Nature Comms (Towards symmetry driven and nature inspired UV filter design, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-019-12719-z) Mitch and Emily's work made the mainstream media, catching the attention of both The Independent and The Telegraph, who both published articles based on the work.

Faraday highlights paper published
After attending the Faraday Discussion that took place in Ventura, CA, USA last April, on Ultrafast Photoinduced Energy and Charge Transfer, Nat, Jack, Matt, Konstantina, Mitch and Vas wrote a paper that collects the highlights of the conference. It has now been published and can be accessed under the DOI 10.1039/C9CC90297J. Well done, all!
