Time-resolved Ultra-fast LASER Spectroscopy Research Group


Research in the group will focus on synthesis, theoretical and experimental study of the optoelectronic properties  and kinetics of the exciton migration process in novel materials for solar energy capture, conversion and storage as well as photocatalysis. These experimental studies will be carried out using ultra-fast time resolved spectroscopic techniques and other spectroscopies such as;


  • Time-resolved femto-second fluorescence up-conversion spectroscopy.
  • Time correlated single photon counting (TCSPC) spectroscopy.
  • Transient absorption (pump-probe) spectroscopy. (Under Development)
  • Steady state UV-VIS spectroscopy
  • Steady state fluorescence spectroscopy


We are also involve in studying photophysics of photoactivated biologically active compounds in collaboration with a research group in the department of biology.
