McDermott, Martin: Travel Grant - 2016-2017

College of Arts and Sciences
Chemistry and Chemical Biology
Project Title: 
Second Harmonic Scattering of Water-Structuring Proteins
Project Abstract: 
The proposed research plan is for M. Luke McDermott to perform experiments for three weeks in the laboratory of Professor Sylvie Roke at the EPFL in Lausanne Switzerland (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne). The EPFL students will provide the experimental setup and expertise. The Cornell group will execute the experiments and analyze and interpret the data. A previous trip was delayed, because of the lack of funding. Ideally, the visit will occur after the end of classes in the spring semester. Therefore, the proposed travel dates are May 14 – June 4, 2016.
