About Us

The Hanson research group focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of light absorbing and emitting molecules. We investigate the utility of these molecules in solar energy conversion, as sensors/probes and in photo-assisted catalysis. We also seek to understand the structure-property relationships of the molecules/devices using electrochemical and photophysical characterization techniques as it's crucial to guiding the design of new molecules.
