The group is performing research on molecular photoswitches for a broad range of applications.
Research leader: Professor Joakim Andréasson
Postdocs: Carlos Benitez-Martin and Jean Rouillon
Joakim Andréasson’s research group focuses on photo-controlled materials using molecular photoswitches from different photochromic families. We have been pursuing research on this class of compounds since 2003, aiming at all-photonic information processing, stimuli-responsive fluorescent systems, and photopharmacology. All-photonic control of FRET-type energy transfer reactions is often used as the functional principle.
