Ultrafast spectroscopy of organic and polymeric semiconductor materials

About

Carlos Silva's research group implements ultrafast optical probes of both organic and inorganic semiconductor materials. This includes conjugated polymers, organic crystals, and quantum-confined systems. We are focused on understanding energy transport, exciton dynamics, and strong coupling of light and matter.
