Exploring stochastic dynamics of nanomaterials


This research proposal aims to study stochastic dynamics of nanoparticles under the influence of thermal, harmonic, optical and non-conservative forces through an integrated experimental/computational approach. On the experimental side, we plan to characterize nanoparticle dynamics through quantitative microscopy, optical tweezers and femtosecond time-resolved spectroscopy measurements (pump-probe, optical Kerr effect, and four-wave mixing). On the computational front, we plan to integrate molecular dynamics with plasmonics to investigate stochastic dynamics of nanoparticles at the molecular level. We also plan to perform stochastic dynamics simulations with the Generalized Langevin equation formalism. Overall, this approach will be employed to study nanoparticles in solution and deposited over substrates. (AU)
