Hello and welcome to the Haque Group webpage! My group is focused upon the development of novel molecular architectures for solar energy conversion, and includes both post-doctoral researchers and students.
We aim to address the limited understanding of such organic and hybrid organic-inorganic photovoltaics devices, and attempt to identify and diffuse some of the fundamental bottlenecks limiting these architectures. To do this we employ a wide range of transient laser spectroscopies to probe the excited state dynamics within a broad range of different active layers, and couple these investigations with opto-electronic characterisation, as well as with various microscopies and structural analysis techniques. We are also actively involved in the design and development of novel hybrid device architectures.
Solar energy is fast becoming one of the most dynamic and diverse interdisciplinary fields in science, and this is reflected within my group which contains specialists in fields ranging from device physics to nanoparticle synthesis. We also work closely with external collaborators, both in academia and in industry, with expertise in theoretical modelling, materials synthesis, and module development.
This webpage is designed to give visitors an overview of the Group and what we research, and also to function as a contact portal for those wishing to get in touch with us for any reason.
