Scott Cushing

Headshot Scott Cushing

Assistant Professor of Chemistry


The Cushing Lab specializes in the development of spectroscopic techniques to answer materials and physical chemistry questions. The lab is developing XUV, soft X-ray, optical, and entangled photon instruments to measure how external perturbations like light, heat, and pressure can be used to generate power and store energy. From the measurements, they also determine how the material modulates classical or entangled photons under external perturbation, giving insight into sensing, computational, and information applications.
