Interested in fabrication and spectroscopic characterization of novel nano-materials and their assembly into functional devices including hybrid organic/inorganic solar cells and fuel cells. The aim is to investagate the relationship between structures and properties and functionality of the devices. A better understanding of interfacial processes in terms of charge transport and transfer properties and recombination processes in solid-solid, solid-liquid interfaces is of great interest.
