Edinburgh Instruments’ Lectureship in Photochemistry and Photophysics at Duke University

Date Announced: 12 May 2016

The first annual Edinburgh Instruments’ Lectureship in Photochemistry and Photophysics at Duke University was held April 29th, 2016, with great success. The plenary speaker, Prof. Richard Eisenberg of the University of Rochester, presented his talk, titled “Fuel from Water: The Light-Driven Generation of Hydrogen.” The lecture was attended by approximately 100 faculty, students, and researchers from Duke University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University, along with a post-lecture “meet-the-speaker” event allowing attendees to interact and chat with the speaker and each other over pizza and snacks.

The annually held event, sponsored by Edinburgh Instruments and Duke University, and organized by Professor Michael J. Therien, looks to become the leading annual photochemistry lecture series in the United States and is open to the public to attend. We are further pleased to announce the 2017 speaker for the event will be Professor Harry B. Gray, from California Institute of Technology. 

Edinburgh Instruments is the world’s premier manufacturer of turn-key photoluminescence and transient absorption spectroscopy systems, and is pleased to be working with such a prestigious university to bring this lectureship series to researchers not only in attendance, but also through the video link below hosted by Duke University.
