We are interested in organic and hybrid nanostructures. One focus of our research is concerned with the fabrication and investigation of organic/inorganic hybrid solar cells with a focus on the fundamental physical processes in the devices. This includes fully organic, solid-state dye-sensitized and perovskite solar cells. We aim to control the morphology to investigate the influence on devices performance and physics. The second focus lies on organic-organic and organic-inorganic interfaces that are responsible for the function of optoelectronic devices. Fundamental processes of charge generation and recombination as well as light coupling into the device can be directly influenced by manipulating the properties of the interface.
