Prof Keith Gordon

Research summary

Professor Keith Gordon’s research interests lie in the quantum modelling of new donor-acceptor systems relevant to charge-transport phenomena in solar cells. In particular he utilises density functional theory and resonance Raman spectroscopy to understand initial photoexcitation processes. He also uses low frequency Raman spectroscopy as a guide to order in polymer-based systems.
