Synthesis and integration of organic conjugated polymers and dye molecules for solar energy conversion applications.
Our work involves applications related to photocatalysis, materials for photovoltaic or solar fuel applications. Our work spans materials research, organic synthesis, hybrid organic/inorganic systems, and nanoscience. We are particularly interested in enhancing the light harvesting and energy (exciton) transfer mechanisms found in porphyrin thin films and organic electrochromic materials.
