Light-matter interactions are centred on Applied Photochemistry and its uses to prepare materials, many utilized for catalysis and health or cosmetics. Several projects in the area of nanomaterials are co-supervised by R.A. Anabel Lanterna.
Prof. Lessard’s research focuses on the development of novel materials and their integration into organic electronic devices such as bio sensors, organic thin film transistors, organic photovoltaics and organic light emitting diodes.
Karin’s research involves developing new ways to harness the sun’s energy. Topics include new materials, high efficiency light sources and light detectors, solar cells and modules as well as new electrical grid architectures and voltage converters.
Based in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences at the Univ. of Ottawa, the Bryce Lab has diverse research interests in solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, quantum chemistry, halogen bonding, mechanochemistry, and more.
The Hemmer Lab combines materials chemistry with physical and biomedical aspects to design and study lanthanide-based nanophosphors as multifunctional nanocarriers for applications ranging from near-infrared based bioimaging to energy conversion technologies.
The Krich group uses theoretical tools to improve our ability to convert light into electricity. Topics include high efficiency photovoltaics and photodetectors, fundamental material properties, devices, and nonlinear optical spectroscopies.
