Research done here in the Pate group focuses primarily on instrument development and applications in rotational spectroscopy. Applications include structural studies of molecules and clusters, probing complex molecule formation in the interstellar medium, and ultrafast chemical dynamics. For more info on these topics, see the following sections:

CP-FTMW (High resolution spectroscopy from 2-60 GHz)
Cyber Enabled Spectroscopy (Extending CP-FTMW techniques to the public -- coming 2013!)
CP-FTmmW (Chirped-pulse techniques from 260-290 GHz)
Astrochemistry (Reaction product screenings and techniques in analysis of broadband astronomical data)
Dynamics (Ultrafast dynamics & spectroscopy)
