Research Activities


(i) Nanoscience/nanotechnology: Synthesis of inorganic (mainly ZnO and ZnO/C hybrid) nanostructured materials and characterization using light scattering, absorbance, photoluminescence and microscopy techniques, having as a final goal to understand the nanostructure growth mechanism and to control their physicochemical/optical properties.

(ii) Computational chemistry: Structural, vibrational properties and molecular interactions using abinitio, DFT and/or semiempirical molecular orbital theoretical methods.

(iii) Raman scattering spectroscopy: Investigation of the structure/structural changes of inorganic materials in solid (crystalline, glassy) and liquid state.

(iv) f-f hypersensitive transitions as a rare earth halides’ structural probe.
