Assoc Prof Justin Hodgkiss

Research summary

Associate Professor Hodgkiss uses ultrafast optical spectroscopy methods to understand the photophysics of organic semiconductor materials. These methods, including ultrafast transient absorption spectroscopy, and an ultrafast fluorescence spectroscopy method that his group developed, allow them to resolve exciton and charge dynamics in organic semiconductor materials. Associate Professor Hodgkiss collaborates widely with groups who create new advanced semiconductors, and others who seek photophysical insights to understand the performance of organic photovoltaic cells and other optoelectronic devices.
