Overview

Welcome to Prof. Carlos Silva's research group homepage. We are an interdisciplinary, diverse, and dynamic group that is delocalized over the School of Chemistry & Biochemistry and the School of Physics at Georgia Tech.  The research in our laboratory is directed towards elucidating the fundamental chemical and physical principles that govern excited-state dynamics in complex materials for optoelectronics and photonics. Our experimental toolbox is broad, but we primarily implement nonlinear ultrafast spectroscopy and quantum optics to understand the optical and electronic properties properties of molecular and hybrid semiconductor materials. While we do not like to be quantum-confined to a single box, we think of our work as a linear combination of physical chemistry, condensed-matter physics, materials physics, and materials chemistry.
