Creation of novel nanomaterials and organic molecules for photonics

We develop luminescent semiconductor nanomaterials which have unique electronic and optical properties. These include lead halide perovskites and chalcogenide quantum dots.

We investigate the charge carrier, fluorescence and electron transfer dynamics of the above nanomaterials at the ensemble and single-molecule levels.

We develop molecular sensors of oxidative stress and biological electron transfer reactions. These sensors include organic electron donor-acceptor dyads.

We develop biomolecular assemblies and perovskite crystals by optical trapping.
