Elliot R. Bernstein
Colorado State University
Bernstein received his Ph.D. degree from Caltech and was a post doctoral fellow at the University of Chicago. He has been at CSU since 1975 where he has studied molecular crystal vibrational and electronic excitons and phase transitions, cryogenic liquids, and gas phase clusters with a central focus on intermolecular interactions. Recently his research has focused on chemical reactions of neutral and ionic clusters. This latter research area has involved catalytic and photocatalytic cluster systems, solute/solvent systems, the reactions of ionized molecules and clusters, and initial steps in the release of stored energy molecular species.
