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.

P&OE @ Vlieland

Every two years scientists of the Zernike institute and related fields gather together on the north sea island Vlieland for two and a half days to talk about their research and to socialise. This year's meeting starts on Sunday 19th May. We look forward to a lot of...

We’re well read in the Royal Society of Chemistry

Two recent papers from our group made it to the top 5% of most read papers in Nanoscale and Journal of Materials Chemistry C in the first quarter of 2019. Sampson's work on the conversion of doctor bladed perovskite think films can be found here. And Simon's review on...

P&OE group at the MRS in Phoenix

This week Bart and Maria are presenting our work at the MRS in Phoenix, Arizona. Bart will show his latest results on perovskite-based gas detectors and Maria will give a great overview of our work on electronic metamaterials based on colloidal quantum...
