Lascamm : a laboratory to promote applications of molecular materials in photonics


The host laboratory current research lines include : a) design and synthesis of luminescent, photorefractive and liquid crystalline materials; b ) characterization by NMR and single crystal and powder X-ray techniques; c) liquid crystals (nematic and smectic) characterization and design and fabrication of devices based on rnesophases; d) photorefractivity in amorphous organic and in liquid crystalline materials. The available equipment includes : spectrophotometers and diffractometers (FT -IR, UVNIS, NMR, MASS, single crystal and low-angle powder X-ray), DSC- TGA, optical and electron microscopes, optical set-ups with CW and pulsed lasers. The fellow should be competent in at least one of the following areas:
1 ) preparation by solvent deposition or spin coating and investigation of the morphology of thin films and determination of their emission properties; preparation of simple electrolurninescent devices and evaluation of their electro luminescent spectra, brightness, life time and stability;
2) characterization of charge transport, dark and photoconductivity in organic amorphous materials;
3) Design and build-up of optical devices and set -ups based on photorefractive materials. The applicants should posses a PhD preferably in the general area of chemical and physical sciences. No applicant shall be discriminated against on the basis of race, gender, marital status, religion, creed and disability.
