Current Research Activities

My primary research interest could be characterized as electron spin resonance. The opto-electronic pathways of organic semiconductors are mediated by neutral “polaron pair” states. My PhD is broadly focused on probing the spin-dependent dynamics of these states through pulsed Electrically and Optically Detected Magnetic Resonance, in which electrons are resonantly excited through radiation, and spin behaviour is observed through changes in conductivity and luminosity. These experimental techniques yield information directly relevant to technological applications, including organic solar cells and light-emitting diodes.
