Materials for efficient photonics and electronics
This research line focuses on the synthesis or fabrication of low dimensional or nanomaterials for applications in devices such as sensors and light sources characterised by an efficient performance that enables them to serve in special environments including biocompatible ones. Our groups investigate a range of materials including single-molecule functionalized nanoparticles and hybrid composites, nano/microstrutured organic materials with biodegradable supports, 2D semiconducting materials, or complex, unconventional 3D structures based on colloidal self-assembly. These are studied in efficient light sources and photon management aimed at biophotonic and quantum photonic applications, or integrated in field effect transistors, photodetectors, optical modulators, photodiodes, and solar cells.
