BuffOPVOur Mission

We carry out research on a variety of topics in organic and hybrid photovoltaics, photonics, bioelectronics, and neuromorphic circuits, as well as study fundamental processes in complex microbial and biophysical systems. We aim to find insightful solutions to compelling scientific questions and to engineer better devices for future technologies that can benefit humankind.

Research Highlights

See our results on "Experimental demonstration of photon upconversion via cooperative energy pooling", published in the Nature Communications. This is the first time this effect has been seen and provides a new pathway for adding the energies of two photons together. More highlights of group activities are in News.
