Area of expertise

My area of scientific expertise and interests covers several fields: luminescent centra in the solid state, transport and separation phenomena in electrolytes, primary photochemical processes in photosynthesis, advanced research in molecular photo-physics (such as experimental study of intra-molecular couplings, electronic and vibronic excitation energy transfer and relaxation), nano-particle photo-physics, all by ultra-high time-resolution optical spectroscopy techniques (such as fs 2D IR and/or UV-VIS 3-pulse photon echo), and recently also XUV short pulse spectroscopy and imaging.

Currently, my research contacts and/or collaborations continue in the field of molecular photochemistry & photophysics, in the field of self-assembling processes, and Rtg/XUV imaging.
