Solid-State Chemistry and Photophysics of Hybrid Materials

Welcome to the Hybrid Materials Research Group website! Our research interest is to search for new organic-inorganic hybrid materials, to understand and control their properties, and to develop photonic and quantum devices from these materials. We use a variety of crystallographic and spectroscopic techniques to study these questions, including single crystal X-ray diffraction, electrical measurement, and time- and space-resolved optical spectroscopy. Please explore our website for more details.
