Dr Nathaniel Davis’s research interests are in chemistry and physics within the field of optoelectronics, specifically the creation of materials allowing light and electronic energy to be interchanged. He works on the synthesis of different nanomaterials (organic/inorganic) for optoelectronic applications such as photovoltaics, light emitting diodes and luminescence solar concentrators. By using spectral management techniques, such as photon multiplication and up-conversion, he hopes to make a new generation of devices with improved efficiency and functionality.
