Spectroscopy

 Proteins are complex macro molecules responsible for life, such as energy conversion, signal transduction, and metabolism. To understand the molecular mechanisms of protein machinery, we study the protein dynamics at the atomic and electronic levels in real time, by using time-resolved XFEL crystallography and time-resolved vibrational spectroscopy. In particular, we focus our attention on the catalytic reaction mechanisms of enzymes.
