WELCOME TO DIMITROV LAB

We use laser spectroscopy to develop new generation semiconducting materials and solar energy technologies. We love building new spectroscopy experiments and learning about photochemistry and photophysics.

RESEARCH

We are an experimental Photochemistry and Photophysics group, which utilises a range of tools to develop novel functional nanomaterials and semiconductors for solar energy harvesting technologies. Our interest is in understanding the response of materials on the femtosecond to millisecond timescales to light absorption and all implications for material’s performance and devices like photovoltaics.

Time-resolved laser spectroscopy techniques like transient absorption and photoluminescence spectroscopy are the main tools we use in combination with material and device fabrication to discover new opportunities for material performance enhancement.

Our ongoing projects explore organic, hybrid perovskite and quantum dot semiconductors. We collaborate with synthetic chemists, materials scientists and engineers from QMUL, The University of Cambridge, UCL, Imperial College London and Swansea University.
