Ultrafast Spectroscopic Studies On Materials For Solar Energy Conversion

Aim is to:

  • Understand the excited state processes and dynamics in photoactive materials with application in photocatalysis or photovoltaics
  • Develop approaches for improvement of the solar conversion efficiency into valuable products such as hydrogen or small hydrocarbon molecules

 Spectroscopic techniques:

  • Femtosecond transient optical absorption
  • Ultrafast photoluminescence using streak camera detection
  • Transient x-ray absorption spectroscopy (at synchrotron facilities)
