Kurt W. Kolasinski
Kurt W. Kolasinski received his B.S. degree from the University of Pittsburgh and his Ph.D. degree from Stanford University. He serves as an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry, West Chester University, West Chester, PA, USA. His research interests include ultrafast, pulsed, and cw laser/surface interactions; reaction dynamics on surfaces and of nanostructures; creation of surface structures and porous solids by the application of etching (chemical and laser assisted) and growth; femto- and nanosecond laser-assisted etching of Si to form arrays of nano- and mesoscopic pillars; spectroscopic and molecular beam investigations of chemistry and photochemistry at surfaces; development of the world's first high harmonic generation source for the initiation and study of surface photochemistry; photoluminescence from nanostructured Si; second harmonic and sum frequency generation (SHG and SFG) at surfaces and buried interfaces; two-photon photoelectron spectroscopy from diamond surfaces.
