The Korter research group at Syracuse University is focused on the application of terahertz (THz) spectroscopy to the study of structure and dynamics in molecular crystals. We apply femtosecond laser spectroscopy and solid-state quantum mechanical methods to improve our understanding of the chemical origins of THz spectral signatures.
