Time period: 12/2001 - today

My research interests are mainly focussed on colloidal nanocristalline structures, on their organization in ordinate assemblies and on the development of nanocomposite materials. Her expertise covers optical, morphological and structural characterization of semiconductor and hybrid nanostructures to be used in optoelectronic and energy conversion. The main activities include: - Synthetic strategies to obtain highly luminescent emitting nanocrystals and oxides with good control on size, shape and crystalline phase - Procedures for the preparation of gold nanoparticles with control on aspect ratio and phase transfer in non polar solvents - Surface functionalization of the nanocrystals by chemistry exchange procedures - Optical (UV-Vis-NIR absorption, photoluminescence, excitation photoluminescence, FTIR spectroscopy, time resolved PL, fluorescence anisotropy, non linear spectroscopies) and morphological (AFM, profilometry, SEM-FEG) characterizations of colloidal nanocrystals and hybrid nanocomposites, both in solution and in thin films. - Strategies for nanocomposite preparation based on polymer or organic molecules and nanocrystals , investigation of the interaction between nanocrystals and ionic liquids and fabrication of photonic or optoelectronic devices - 2/3 D assembly of nanocrystals on substrates, obtaining new functional materials with tailored properties
