Lu Lin

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Lu received his Ph.D. in 2014 from Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, where he used second harmonic generation to study supramolecular chirality at interfaces. He continued working there for two and half years before joining Prof. Heather Allen's research group at The Ohio State University as a postdoc in January 2017. Lu's work at OSU was focused on molecular structures of aqueous surfaces using vibrational sum frequency generation spectroscopy. In March 2019, Lu moved to University of Notre Dame and worked there with Prof. Arnaldo Serrano on linear and nonlinear infrared spectroscopy. Lu joined ORNL as a postdoctoral research associate in December 2019, where he has been working with Ben Doughty and Yingzhong Ma to understand the chemistry of buried Liquid/Liquid interfaces using SFG and neutron scattering methods.
