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.

Photochromism in Perovskites – Bart’s new paper

Bart's latest paper is out - congratulations! In his recent report, Photochromism in Ruddlesden–Popper copper-based perovskites: a light-induced change of coordination number at the surface, published in Journal of Materials Chemistry C, Bart studied the origin of a...

The adventures of tintin – our new paper

We have a new paper out! In our latest contribution to the interesting field of tin-based halide perovskites, we collaborated with researchers from Rennes and Zurich to study the temperature dependent characteristics of formamidinium tin iodide (FASnI3) single...
