Photophysics and OptoElectronics Group

Welcome to the website of the Photophysics and OptoElectronics Group of Prof.dr. Maria Antonietta Loi.

Our group focuses on the study of the photophysic and optoelectronic properties of solution processable semiconductors, such as:

  • hybrid perovskites
  • colloidal Quantum Dots
  • organic semiconductors
  • carbon nanotubes

The ultimate purpose of our studies is the application of these new materials in cheap and high performing solar cells and other electronic devices.
