Our research group is interested in the optical and electronic properties of novel semiconductor materials. We want to investigate the fundamental properties of these materials to understand how they arise and how they can be controlled. This knowledge is then used to optimize these materials for specific optoelectronic applications, such as for light-emitting diodes, lasers or solar cells. Ideally, there is a feedback loop between synthesis, optical spectroscopy, and device fabrication and characterization.
Find out about what materials we are investigating, and how we synthesize and characterize them.
We use optical microscopy to investigate novel nanomaterials. Depending on what we want to understand different techniques and setups are required.
Merging our novel nanomaterials with a newly gained understanding of their fundamental properties, we aim to optimize optoelectronic devices for specific applications.
