Research Themes

  • Materials Chemistry 
  • Synthesis/Catalysis

Research Description

Our research lays at the interface of organic and materials chemistry, focusing on synthesis of new electronic properties in organic matter and their implementation in optoelectronic devices, both in thin films (field-effect transistors, photovoltaics, etc) and at the nanoscale. While design of new molecules and materials is at the core of our activities, the group is actively involved in a variety of state-of-art characterization studies, including advanced spectroelectrochemical methods, STM study of molecule-surface interactions, nanoscale electrical measurements, fabrication of prototype devices.
