NCAS Chemistry Professor Awarded the Donald H. Jacobs Chair in Applied Physics

Rutgers-Newark Office of Communications

By Robin Warshaw

Imagine the speed an instrument would need to see a process happen within one second. Then imagine the speed needed for equipment to capture such a process in one-tenth of a trillionth of a second.

That time resolution, using synchronized laser pulses, is achieved by an ultrafast microscope created through the research of Dr. Piotr Piotrowiak, a physical chemist and professor in the Department of Chemistry at Rutgers-Newark.
