Condensed Matter and Photonics

The programme operates at the cusp between fundamental physics and development of device concepts though measurements of fundamental optical and electrical processes in organic and inorganic semiconductor and metallic (nano) structures, enabling advances in understanding of light-matter interactions, charge transport, development and verification of theories, development of novel device concepts and high sensitivity photometric and spectroscopic instruments. Group activity can be further subdivided into the research themes of photonics and biophotonics, quantum materials and devices, nanoscale science and technology, theory and computational physics and imaging, sensors and instrumentation.
