Welcome to RNMSL!
RNMSL is the research laboratory and group of Dr. John-David R. Rocha in the Rochester Institute of Technology's College of Science School of Chemistry & Materials Science. We're interested in utilizing optical spectroscopic techniques to study important fundamental nanomaterial properties and assisting producers and end-users meet on the same page to achieve highly desired next-generation products.
Dr. Rocha congratulates Leonard Breindel and Rakan Ashour on their completion of their MS degrees in Chemistry and Materials Science Engineering, respectively. Also, congratulations to Mikhail Solomonik on completion of his BS degree in Chemistry.
Summer and Fall 2014
A new undergraduate Chemistry major, Bilal Zeghum, joined the RNMSL this Spring. He will join Dustin and Ryan for Summer research. Also following the overwhelming success of Dr. Rocha's course in Computational Chemistry, it is scheduled to be offered again in 2014. Some advanced undergraduate and graduate students have already signed up and enrollment is expected to approach 10 again, not counting other faculty participants also attending the course. We will utilize the recently installed campus site-license of Gaussian 09W.
Dr. Rocha's invitation to speak during RIT's School of Physics & Astronomy's Colloqium series has been postponed to Fall 2014.
