Physical Chemistry of Surfaces and Interfaces
Focused on unraveling and controlling the nanoscale structural and electronic properties of nanostructures and interfaces through surface engineering. Devoting special effort to organic materials, part of our investigation centers on organic semiconductors with relevance as active layers for electronic devices (such as organic solar cells and organic field effect transistors).
Our research spans from fundamental issues in organic growth to the electronic response of metal-organic junctions within two main research activities:
- Design and growth of ultrathin organic layers and organic/organic heterojunctions and
- Nanoscale properties of organic/electrode interfaces and devices
