Physical Chemistry

The photo-physics of organic complexes, proteins, ligands, dendrimers, as well as inorganic such as rare earth complexes and their interactions and dynamics are of importance in a multitude of processes.

The optical and electronic properties, the band-gap of bulk and nanostructured semiconductors, can all be characterised using fluorescence spectroscopy for use in electronic devices, detectors, diodes, transducers and much more.
