The objective of our lab is to study the basic properties of functional soft-semiconductors, and to develop different applicative devices based on these studies. In the lab we combine Chemistry, Physics and Materials science to gain full understanding of the materials’ characteristics and potential.

The work in the lab begins with the design and synthesis of the compounds and a basic characterization to understand their structure and physical properties. Compounds with relevant characteristics are studied using advanced microscopy and spectroscopy to study fundamental physical processes and specifically light-matter interactions and structural dynamics. Utilizing this knowledge, we design and fabricate electro-optical devices such as high-energy (X-Ray) detectors and light emitting diodes (LED) based on these compounds.
