Advanced Functional Materials and Devices Group

Group Leaders:

Welcome to our homepage. We are working on advanced functional materials and devices, in particular those based on organic semiconductors and for photovoltaic applications. Organic solar cells have the potential for flexible, stable, colourful solar cells for providing inexpensive electricity from the sun. This emerging solar cell technology is based on earth-abundant materials and made using large area coating technologies (in our case vacuum deposition) such that it can reach terawatt of installed capacity, i.e. enough to contribute significantly to the world energy supply.

Our funding comes from the following sources and the project details can be found in the menu on the left hand side.


We will continue to expand our homepage over time and similarly, our GitHub Homepage will grow. If you want to stay up-to-date with our research and the fun things we stumble across, follow us on Twitter.

On the right side you can find more detail about our group members and a list of our publications. Our AFMD group belongs to the research area "Semiconductor Materials, Devices & Nanostructures" in the "Condensed Matter Physics" Subdepartment of the Department of Physics (links below). If you have any questions, suggestions and/or are interested in a collaboration, please let us know.
