Polaritonic Chemistry

Light-matter strong coupling and the formation of hybrid light-matter states has been extensively studied in quantum optics and condensed matter physics, but its consequences for molecular science is just beginning to be explored. Our group activities are mainly focused on understanding the chemical and physical properties of such newly formed light-matter hybrid states.
