Research Interests


  • Application of techniques of micro-optical spectroscopy (IR, Raman and fluorescence) to molecular crystals.
  • Study of photo-induced solid state reactions in anthracene derivatives.
  • Solid state phase transitions and photoreactions at high pressure and high temperature.
  • Polymorphism in organic semiconductors in bulk crystal systems and thin films.
  • Charge Transfer crystals for organic electronics applications.
  • Study of polymorphs stability and surface mediated polymorphism in APIs
  • Crystal Structure Prediction

In the course of her research EV has dealt with spectroscopy properties of molecules in the gas phases and in condensed systems, by means of: fluorescence spectroscopy, both time-resolved and static, of organic systems in solution, vibro-rotational spectroscopy and high-resolution vibrational spectroscopy of isolated molecular species, Raman spectroscopy in the solid state, calculations of vibrational force fields, molecular dynamics calculations of crystalline and amorphous materials, harmonic lattice dynamics and quasi-harmonic methods for calculating semi-empirical and DFT for isolated molecules.

In recent years the research activity has focused on the study of structural and transport properties of materials for organic electronics, by means of spectroscopic techniques such as Raman confocal microscopy and fluorescence, supported by calculation techniques of lattice energy minimization, lattice dynamics and molecular dynamics.
