Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

At the end of the course, the student has acquired knowledge of the advanced methodologies and applications in the fields of lighting (LED and OLED), solar energy conversion and storage, photocatalysis and on the working principles and use of the simplest photochemical techniques both in steady-state and time-resolved regime.

Contenuti

Brief account on supramolecular photochemistry and analysis of some complex systems (quantum dots, metal nanoparticles, organic nanostructures, organic frameworks, organic semiconductors, heterostructures, hybrid materials): from design to application.

Introduction of the principal photophysical methods with nanometrical resolution and their applications: Fluorescence Microscopy; Multiphoton Excitation and Microscopy; Fluorescence sensing; Fluorescence-Lifetime Imaging Microscopy; Single-Molecule detection; Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy; Super-resolution microscopy.

Overview, from history to state of the art, on the applications of photochemistry in energy conversion:

  • Light emitting diodes (LED, OLED, LEEC)
  • Applications of photochromism and luminescent sensors
  • Solar energy conversion (water splitting, CO2 reduction, solar fuels, photodegradation)
  • Applications of UV-Vis and solar light in organic synthesis

Technical and experimental consideration (sources, setup, photoreactors, flow)

Discussion on future advances.
