The long-term goal of the research program of the Photochemical Dynamics Group is to contribute to the advancement of solar energy conversion science and technology through basic research. Currently, we focus on the characterization of 3rd generation photovoltaic and photocatalytic systems and on the understanding of the mechanisms and dynamics of underlying phenomena. In this context, it is particularly interesting to elucidate the kinetics of fundamental processes (such as photoinduced interfacial electron transfer, charge transport, energy transfer and relaxation), which prevail in nanostructured materials and their interfaces. These processes are not only essential to the functioning of the studied systems, but may also be relevant for many other materials and applications.
