Established in 2009 as the core facility for the DOE-funded Photosynthetic Antenna Research Center (PARC), a Frontier Research Center.
Currently managed by the Center for Solar Energy and Energy Storage and the Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering (EECE) and located in the Brauer Hall (rooms 022-023).
It is particularly designed to study photophysical ultrafast processes like light absorption, emission, excitation and electron transfer from femto- to mili-second time ranges.
