research on the
electronic and optical response of materials provides the scientific
for the development of novel and advanced photonic devices.
interest focuses on the optical properties of organic and hybrid
systems, particularly nanoaggregates and nanostructured materials. We
customize spectroscopic tools
to investigate light-matter interaction with sub-micron spatial
resolution and on femtosecond time-scales. The materials we
investigate offer the prospect of low-cost, solution processable
optoelectronic devices such as thin-film solar cells, visible and
infrared photodetectors, organic lasers and optical amplifiers.
