Welcome to the laboratories of Professor Steven Sibener. Our interests include chemical physics, physical chemistry, nanoscience, surface science, and materials research. This group web page is a survey of who we are and what we are about. Our current affiliations include the Department of Chemistry, the James Franck Institute, the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, and the Institute for Molecular Engineering. An additional short summary can be found in the Department of Chemistry's online brochure. For a more in-depth discussion, please feel free to contact any of us or stop by if you are ever in the Chicago area.
