The research programme of our group is devoted to functional dyes and the development of methodologies for the self-assembly of pi-conjugated molecules into nanoscale and condensed phase materials for highly desirable (opto-)electronic, photovoltaic and biomedical applications as well as(photo-)catalytic water splitting.

Since more than a decade, our group has been intensively investigating the organization of various classes of dyes,  including merocyanines, squaraines, diketopyrrolopyrroles, chlorins, and in particularperylene bisimides by non-covalent forces into desirable nanoscale architectures as well as liquid-crystalline and crystalline solid state materials. Our efforts resulted in unique smart electronic and photofunctional materials based on self-assembled dyes that could be embedded in technical devices like organic field effect transistors and organic solar cells.
