This outline summarizes our current research activities, namely, the application of an arsenal of spectroscopic and microscopic techniques to a variety of molecular systems designed specifically to explore the nature of the chemical, physical and photophysical properties of new molecular hybrids, quantum dots, quantum rods and nanoparticles.

Our experimental tools span from ultrafast spectroscopy (absorption and fluorescence) and vibrational spectroscopy (Raman and IR) to electrochemistry and microscopy (Raman, TEM and AFM). Such conception is extremely valuable for the realization of solar energy conversion, photovoltaics, and catalytic reactivity, specifically to novel chemical and light driven systems.
