Organic-Inorganic Interfaces

Accurate calculations of orbital energies for molecules chemisorbed on metal surfaces are important for understanding energy conversion, molecular-scale transport, and charge transfer events at metal electrodes. More »

Molecular Junctions

Single molecule junctions are model interfaces between a single organic molecule connected to macroscopic metallic electrodes, and as such provide an ideal platform for developing a fundamental understanding key processes in solar energy conversion - photon absorption and charge separation, transport, and collection at organic/metal and organic/inorganic interfaces.

Semiconductor Nanostructures

The potential to modify semiconductor properties by forming nanostructures presents an exciting new realm for materials engineering, stimulated by recent advances in nanoscale growth and fabrication. More »

Complex Oxides

With their highly tunable electronic states, both complex (transition metal) oxides are highly promising classes of materials in which to realize new phenomena that may challenge our current understanding of condensed matter. More »

Organic Semiconductors and Assemblies

Lightweight, abundant, cheap, environmentally-benign, flexible, and strongly absorbing, organic assemblies are promising for next-generation energy conversion applications. More »

Metal-Organic Frameworks

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are highly versatile forms of condensed matter that consist of lattice of transition metal ions coordinated by organic ligands, a marriage of sorts between transition metal oxides and organics. More »
