Molecular Engineering for optics

published on , updated on

The design and characterization of new molecular photoactive materials are at the heart of our group. The materials currently under consideration, by molecular engineering, have interesting properties for optical and nonlinear optical switching, photo-induced nano-fabrication, and chemosensing. Our core technique is synthesis and we explore the linear and nonlinear optical and recognition properties of our compounds at the molecular scale using a wide range of spectroscopic and analytical techniques, while collaborating closely with physicists, physical chemists for the design and study of the functional materials.
