The research activity of Photonics and Optoelectronics group is
focused on innovative materials, both from a fundamental and applicative
point of view, in particular for the realization of photonic devices. We work
on synthesis, characterization, study of optical and electrical properties of
hybrid organo-metallic compounds, mostly perovskite-based, including
low-dimensionality materials and nanostructures. The main
application fields of these materials include sustainable energy such as
solar cells, high-efficiency light emitters, materials fot photocatalysis, as
well as optical amplifiers, sources of non-classical light, nonlinear optics.
Our experimental research activity is carried out in the Laboratories
at Dipartimento di Fisica, Centro Servizi di Ateneo per la Ricerca
(CeSAR), AUSI center in Iglesias and in collaboration with national and
international research centers.
