Research in our group is devoted to the characterisation of the structures of a variety of molecules using rotational spectroscopy in combination with different techniques for vaporization. We use frequency-domain and time-domain spectrometers coupled with laser ablation, heating and fast-mixing methods, and electric discharges to study biomolecules (amino acids, nucleic acid bases, etc.), molecules of astrophysical interest, and complexes, among others. Please have a look at our research page for more information on our projects!
Our laboratory is involved in an international endeavor to advance our molecular understanding of the universe. Together with laboratories in Spain, Europe and the United States (NASA), we are using high resolution experimental techniques to produce and analyze important possible inter-stellar molecules to meet the needs of the astrochemical and astrobiolgical community.
