Tuphan Devkota

Postdoctoral Scholar


Mailing Address:

104 Chemistry Building

University Park, PA 16802

Research Interests:

Ultrafast spectroscopy and imaging


Tuphan Devkota received his PhD in Chemistry with Prof. Gregory V. Hartland at the University of Notre Dame in 2019. As a PhD he has worked on a variety of projects using ultrafast spectroscopy to study single nanostructures, including measurements of energy dissipation for vibrational modes, Brillouin oscillations induced in the surrounding medium by energy transfer, and the propagation of surface plasmon polaritons in metal nanostructures. He is currently working as a Postdoctoral Scholar with Prof. Kenneth L. Knappenberger, Jr. in the Department of Chemistry at the Penn State University, on the investigation of light-matter interactions of nanoparticles using femtosecond nonlinear optical spectroscopy and imaging techniques.
