Short description of research profile

The group performs research in the field of:

  • modern functional optical materials,
  • design of biosensors and fluorimetric sensors,
  • plasmonically induced enhanced fluorescence,
  • optically active core-shell nanoparticles
  • high-performance luminescent materials of potential importance as molecular converters of solar energy into electricity, scintillators or photovoltaic materials,
  • hybrid optical materials, their influence on radiative and non-radiative processes in luminescence centers and processes of transport, trapping and conversion of excitation energy,
  • large macromolecules of biological importance, proteins, peptides, pharmaceuticals – conformations, dynamics, interactions,
  • Energy and charge transport in special systems. Modeling and Monte-Carlo simulations.

Experimental techniques involve UV-Vis spectroscopy, sensitive measurements of luminescence charateristics  like quantum yield, emission anisotropy, mean fluorescence lifetime, a set of time-resolved spectroscopy methods in ps, ns and longer time domains. Especially designed sensitive setup for surface plasmon coupled emission measurements.
