    TITLE: Light, Electrons, Protons: Lessons from Model Systems and Potentials for Photocatalysis ABSTRACT: The inspiration for this talk comes from the photoelectrochemical interface, which is a place rich with unknowns and unrealized potentials. Electrons are excited by light either in the electrode or in the adsorbed molecules, charges traverse the electrode-electrolyte interface, protons flow from the bulk to complete redox reactions, and interfacial electric fields develop to balance chemical potential differences between the opposing phases. In this talk, the complex chemistry at the interface will be used as a point of reference to motivate several chemical dynamics studies in small molecules, solids, and interfaces with the goal of generating new directions and ideas for understanding and driving interfacial reactions. New concepts that will be discussed are basicity in the excited state, solvation near an interface, electronic-vibrational dynamics in a solid made of a redox couple, and influencing proton conductivity with light. Several avenues on how to apply this knowledge will be proposed.

    TITLE: Single-Molecule Spectroscopy with Catalysts, Conductive Polymers, and Optical Microresonators ABSTRACT: Measurements on individual molecules have revolutionized how chemists can perceive molecular properties and dynamics, yet single-molecule techniques can only be applied with considerable experimental constraints. The Goldsmith group develops new tools through chemical synthesis, micro and nanophotonics, and microfluidics that allow single-molecule techniques to be applied in previously inaccessible scenarios and enable new measurements. I will discuss recent measurements on the initiation of individual organometallic catalysts, observation of single-molecule binding dynamics at millimolar concentrations, detecting the heat dissipated from molecules using optical microresonators, hybrid photonic-plasmonic systems, and spectroscopy on individual conductive polymer molecules.
