About Andrei Tokmakoff's Work

My group develops new experiments for watching the motion of molecules in solution. For instance, the 2D IR method uses sequences of ultrashort pulses of infrared light to pluck different bond vibrations of a molecule and track how they exchange energy, which can then be computationally modelled to reveal frozen molecular structures and construct molecular movies. Our group uses these methods to study the molecular motions of water and protein conformational changes.
