Coming from a physics background my research interests are spread across different fields covering physics, chemistry material science and nanotechnology. A major focus of interest are structure-function relations of organic and hybrid (organic-inorganic) materials that are used for energy applications, mainly solar cells and also further related applications such as sensors and energy storage applications which can tremendously benefit from functional nanostructured materials. Our research involves several aspects from photophysics, material processing and its characterisation to its final application in devices, covering fundamental questions to engineering challenges.

Research Topics:

  • Organic Photovoltaics

  • Hybrid Photovoltaics

  • Material Processing

  • Structure-Function Relations of Nanostructured Materials

  • Optoelectronics
