Research Overview

Our research is focussed on the optical and electronic properties of molecular and nanoscale semiconductor systems. In particular we are interested in emergent phenomena , i.e. phenomena that occur in ensembles or at interfaces between materials, but not in isolated molecules or semiconductor systems. In the past few years we have uncovered evidence that such phenomena underlie the efficient operation of a range of optoelectronic devices, giving rise to unexpected coherent phenomena.  

We seek to understand such phenomena to create a new generation of electronic and photonic devices.
