New book: The Photophysics Behind Photovoltaics and Photonics

15 06 2012

Organic solar cells and dye solar cells are increasingly relying on sophisticated and improved photophysical processes. This topic has become very important across the last decade and now, everyone involved in the research needs to have an idea about  photoexcitation dynamics, charge transfer, and similar topics. This new book, “The Photophysics Behind Photovoltaics and Photonics”, covers the basic physics of this field and many useful applications.

The author, Guglielmo Lanzani, is Head of the Center for Nano Science and Technology of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT@POLIMI) and associate professor of Physics at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Having obtained his academic degree from the University of Genova, he spent five years as a researcher in Sassari, before taking up his present appointment at Politecnico di Milano, and more recently at IIT. Professor Lanzani has authored over 180 scientific publications, and has given 65 invited talks. He is a member of several conference program boards and chair of international conferences.

Prof. Lanzani is also coordinator of the European FP7 project PHOCS, Photogenerated Hydrogen by Organic Catalytic Systems, that is very hopefully just going to start (as announced today), with cooperation of Universitat Jaume I, EPFL and other eminent centers on the water splitting with semiconductors…
