Welcome to the Ritchie Group website!
We apply optical techniques to explore and exploit the way light interacts with matter. Our experiments include spectroscopic analysis of gases, photolysis, and reaction dynamics, as well as manipulation of colloidal systems using optical tweezers.
New postdoctoral research associate position advertised. Applications must be received by 13 November!
We are excited to welcome our new Part II students, Chris and Will, and to welcome back Sarah, a former Part II student now working towards her DPhil!
Congratulations to Dr. Julian Few and Dr. Ann Bergin for successfully completing their DPhil viva voces!
