My research focuses on the photophysics of organic optoelectronic materials and nanodevices. We develop state-of-the-art ultrafast laser spectroscopy tools to observe and control molecular-scale dynamics in plastic solar cells, flexible transistors, quantum-dot photodetectors and other functional nanosystems. The prospective work includes charge-transport properties of proteins, ultrafast switching of organic transistors, and time-resolved spectroscopy on the scale of single molecules.
Artem received his undergraduate degree from Lomonosov Moscow State University (2005) and PhD from the University of Groningen (2009). In 2010, he was awarded a Rubicon Fellowship from Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) to join University of Cambridge, and in 2012 an NWO Veni fellowship which he carried out at FOM Institute AMOLF in Amsterdam. He came back to Cambridge in 2014 and then moved to Imperial College in 2016 as a Royal Society University Research Fellow and ERC Starting Grant holder.
Joining the group
We are on the look out for enthusiastic students and postdocs willing to explore problems at the frontier of nanoscale physics, physical chemistry and materials science.
