Bo Albinsson

Professor; Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Physical Chemistry

Bo Albinsson has a long standing interest in mechanisms for energy and electron transfer reactions with relevance for solar energy research. He has also lately developed DNA nanostructures dressed with photo redox active functionalizations. Albinsson has a broad interest in advanced optical spectroscopic methods. He is involved in managing three laser laborites for time resolved emission and absorption studies ranging from millisecond to femtosecond time resolution.
