Spatial and temporal imaging of energy and charge transport in solar energy conversion systems
We employ ultrafast spectroscopy combined with optical microscopy and scanning probe microscopy to achieve simultaneous ultrafast time resolution and nanometer spatial resolution. This research program aims at providing spatial maps of carrier dynamics, and allowing for imaging energy and charge propagation in space directly. This is an exciting new frontier that combines advanced imaging and dynamics techniques to address fundamental questions regarding energy flow in individual nanostructures, organic materials, solar cells, and photosynthetic systems.
