Organic Semiconductors, Optical Nanostructures

The Organic Semiconductors and Optical Nanostructures Group, headed by Professor John Lupton, is a new and growing condensed matter research group in the Physics Department at the University of Regensburg.

The mission of our group is to develop and implement new spectroscopic techniques to gain a fundamental understanding of the elementary properties of optoelectronic materials. The goal of our activities is to identify strategies to improve the performance of devices such as light-emitting diodes and solar cells, as well as developing novel optical sensing techniques.

Our activities, best described by the term "Molecular Mesoscopics", bridge length scales from single molecules to bulk films, merge organic chemistry and condensed matter physics, and touch on solid-state quantum optics, polymer physics and the life sciences.
