Photonics - Research Activities - Luminescent Materials

Nicola Armaroli, Elisa Bandini, Andrea Barbieri, Ilse Manet, Filippo Monti, Barbara Ventura

We synthesize and characterize the optical properties of luminescent materials such as organic molecules, polymers, transition metal complexes, MOFs and organic crystals both in solution and in the solid state. These materials are typically used in electroluminescent devices and fluorescent sensors.
