The Lippert Research Group

The interactions between light and matter at the molecular level are instrumental in generating the colorful visual landscape that fills our day-to-day life. Our laboratory designs and synthesizes small organic molecules that translate chemical events into colorimetric, fluorescence, or chemiluminescence responses by finely tuning this light-matter interaction.These molecules can be used to image chemistry in living cells with fluorescence microscopy, in whole animals using chemiluminescence imaging, and have been adapted to clinical sample measurements. Additionally, creative tuning of molecular photochemistry has enabled the development of a new class of volumetric three-dimensional displays.
