TIME-RESOLVED TERAHERTZ AND OPTICAL SPECTROSCOPY FACILITY

Grant number: LE160100107 | Funding period: 2016 - 2018

Completed

Abstract

This project aims to use time-resolved terahertz and optical spectroscopy as techniques to probe the photogenerated exciton and charge carrier dynamics at the heart of solar energy technologies. The dynamics of electrons and nuclei following the absorption of light involves processes which occur on timescales from femtoseconds to microseconds. The ability to probe these dynamics is of great importance for understanding the underlying photophysics and photochemistry of a range of technologies including solar photovoltaics and solar photocatalysis. This facility would enable researchers to deeply understand the photophysical processes occurring in advanced photovoltaic and photocatalysis mater..
