Part of the group had tons of fun at Catalina Island when Chong was out of town (alternative from Xun). (July 24~27, 2018)


The first group picture. Group members convene for photos during a day-long lab cleanup. The lab is in a much better shape now! (May. 10th, 2018)


The initial stage of lab setupA, Schematic of the initial reaction in the Liu lab. Optical images of the initial idle state (Lab0,idle, B), the transition state (LabC), and the first intermediate (Lab1D). (Unpublished results)
