Project description

The research at Prof. Feldmann’s Chair (PhoG) focuses on understanding and applying the interaction of tailored nanosystems with light. Our mission is to synthesize novel solution-based semiconductor and metal nanocrystals, which are tailored to provide optimized functionalities specifically addressing applications as efficient light emitters, solar energy converters, sensors as well as diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Our major goal is to carry out advanced optical spectroscopy studies to gain a detailed understanding of optically induced charge carrier dynamics such as relaxation, recombination, charge separation, energy transfer and the initiation of photochemical reactions.
