At Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, scientists conduct nationally and internationally recognized research into condensed phase and interfacial chemical physics. The research provides a fundamental understanding of molecular processes in condensed phases. This work addresses fundamental questions in thermal and non-thermal chemistry, interfacial molecular and ionic transport, amorphous and metastable materials, and other processes in complex systems related to energy use, environmental remediation, and waste management. Research in this area is focused on structures and processes of molecular and nanoscale systems in complex environments, such as in the condensed phase and at interfaces. We study model systems to better understand natural systems and guide the development of new materials and approaches for clean and efficient energy use. Another central feature is developing new experimental and theoretical methods with broad applications to research in the natural sciences. The program in condensed phase and interfacial chemical physics consists of both theoretical elements and experimental elements, including the molecular beam scattering instrument shown here.
