Dr George Vamvounis

Research summary

Dr. George Vamvounis’s area of focus is in the structure-property relationship of photochromic compounds and conjugated polymers. His work based on photochromic compounds focusses on the synthesis of new functional and solution processable materials based on diarylethenes (DAEs) for light activated electronics. His work based on conjugated polymers is based on the synthesis and characterisation of new fluorescent polymers, which have wide applicability in organic optoelectronic devices
