Optoelectronic Materials and Devices

The interaction of light with matter is of fundamental and technological interest. In the Kagan group we use cw and time- and spatially-resolved optical and optoelectronic spectroscopies and AC and DC electrical spectroscopies to understand the fate of photoexcitations and the processes giving rise to the emission and transfer of excitations and the separation and transport of charge in nanocrystalline and organic semiconductors. Building on our fundamental understanding, we design materials and devices that interconvert light and electricity in the examples of light-emitting diodes, photovoltaics and photodetectors.
