Professor Dantus Receives 2019 Technology Transfer Award at MSU Innovation Celebration

Prof. Marcos Dantus, University Distinguished Professor and MSU Foundation Professor of Chemistry and Physics, received the 2019 Technology Transfer Award for his work with ultrafast lasers—an innovation that takes a low intensity, long pulse and compresses it to increase its energy. These lasers are ideal for probing and controlling chemical reactions and for use in biomedical imaging and sensing.

Discovery of a photobase so strong, it merits a moniker of "super"

A light-induced super photobase has been discovered at Michigan State University that is revealing some of photosynthesis’ desirable traits. The interdisciplinary team was able to document the ultrafast dynamics of the super photobase that is 10 million times stronger than anything previously discovered.
