My research focuses on the study of the optical and electrical properties of organic (carbon-based) and printable semiconductors for optoelectronics and photonics. Research activities in my group span from the study of devices such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs), photovoltaic diodes (PVDs), field-effect transistors (FETs), lasers and sensors, to the investigation of supramolecular architectures for the control of the relevant solid-state properties of conjugated semiconductors. Over the years we have developed a keen interest in the engineering of the electrode-semiconductors interfaces, also with the help of non-invasive optical techniques such as electroabsorption spectroscopy.
