Hybrid organic/inorganic perovskite for high efficient solar cells

In the broad context of new generation photovoltaic, perovskite technology gained the interest of the scientific community thanks to the surprising power conversion efficiency (PCE) approaching that of already commercialized thin film photovoltaic. Hybrid organic/inorganic Perovskites are semiconductors with general formula ABX3, where A is the organic molecule such as CH3NH3 or CH(NH2)2, B the

Solar cells sensitized with natural and artificial dyes (DSSC).

The DSSCs represent an alternative and simple, though complex, third generation photovoltaic tool that seeks to help solve global and environmental energy problem. It is recalled that the first generation devices are based on crystalline silicon and used in the common photovoltaic panels, while those of the second generation (“thin film” technologies) are used in

Computational Chemistry Project

Modern technology is based on a large number of “new materials” that from now on, and even more in the near future, will characterize our society. The enormous chemical variability has led to a multiplication of physico – chemical studies to identify, characterize and produce new materials, but these studies can still manage to explore

Nanostructured Materials

Nanostructured Materials Most of naturally occurring nanostructured materials are hierarchically organized, with an organization of materials in discrete steps, ranging from the atomic to the macroscopic scale. It is possible in principle to take as model what occurs in nature to design novel materials for a wide range of application. Mission of the Project is

Disperse Systems Laboratory

The research activity is devoted to the study of the structural and dynamical properties of colloids by spectroscopic approaches such as elastic, quasi-elastic and inelastic scattering, time-resolved fluorescence, non-linear optics, circular and linear dichroism and laser Doppler electrophoresis. Colloids represent a good model for soft matter physics and chemistry and find interesting applications as drug

Nanosoft Laboratory

The research activity is maily devoted to nano-science and nano-technology. Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy Surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) is a tool for highly sensitive detection of molecular compound and biomolecules with sensitivity that can reach to the single molecule level. Signal amplifications in the 104 – 109 range can be reached as a result
