Research in the Pelton lab is at the interface between materials physics, quantum-information science, and chemistry. We optical techniques to measure physical processes in nanometer-scale materials, and uses the materials to enable next-generation photonic technologies. Our research contributes to a fundamental understanding of the physical phenomena enabling quantum photonics, solar energy conversion, and sensing.

The research is enabled by a team of scientists and students who work collaboratively to achieve research goals. The group operates on the principles of transparency, equity, and scientific integrity. If you are a graduate or undergraduate student interested in working on a research project in the group, please contact Dr. Pelton.
