Welcome to the Photonic Molecular Science Group

imageOur research interest is focused on new photo-functional molecular and nano-scale materials which actively interact with photons including photo-responsive molecules, polymers and nanoparticles.


Now JPSP-fellowship is open for application. We will welcome to take a part of proposals concerning on Photochrochromic Materials, Thermoelectric Materials and Circularly Polarized Luminescence Materiasl made by motivated and highly talented youg scientists.
Dr Jatish Kumar left our group. He joined to CIC biomaGUNE in Spain as a Marie Curie postdoctral fellow. Congratulations and good luck!
Prof. Gwénaël RAPENNE (CEMES, CNRS, University of Paul Sabatier) will stay in our group as a visiting professor for two months.
