The group has a leading activity on the application of Raman spectroscopy to carbon films, nanotubes and graphene. This technique is used as non-destructive characterization tool in order to probe and tune the properties of carbon-based nanostructures for technological applications.
Currently the group is exploring new 2-dimensional materials, such as graphene, dichalcogenides, and their combination in superlattices and hetero-structures in order to develop new electronic devices and photovoltaics compatible with low cost and flexible substrates. The group is also working on new functional materials to enable fabrication of biosensors and solar cells, by combining the properties of graphene with the processability and tunability of the properties of organic molecules.
