Aaron obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from our group. He joined in January 2002 and defended his thesis in June 2007. Aaron's project was related to the application of laser spectroscopic methods, such as surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) and surface-enhanced second harmonic generation (SESHG), to the study of the adsorption of organic molecules on silver surfaces. All experiments were realized under electrochemical control. One particular interest was to observe the magnitude of nonlinear optical activity from adsorbed chiral molecules.
Aaron was the recipient of the Physics Department 2004 Andy Farquharson Award for Excellence in teaching.
