Baxter T. Flor is a PhD student under Dr. George C. Schatz at Northwestern University and Dr. Xuedan Ma at Argonne National Laboratory working in the Center for Molecular Quantum Transduction (CMQT) EFRC. His research focuses on the photo-physics and electronic structure of 2D nanomaterials for quantum applications. He has studied the wavelength dependence of spin injection with circularly polarized light in cadmium selenide nanoplatelets and is currently investigating the formation of long-lived spin qubits via triplet energy transfer in donor/acceptor complexes. His undergraduate research took place at the Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices (CAMD) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana under Dr. Gary L. Findley. There he studied electron ionization energies and electron mobility in polar and non-polar fluids. ORCID ID # 0000-0001-8926-9601.
