Imperial College London
Research Project: Near-Infrared Organic Semiconductor Materials for Optoelectronic Technologies
Supervisors: Dr. Nicola Gasparini (ICL), Dr. Bob Schroeder (UCL)
Matilde received her MSci in Chemistry at Imperial College London in 2023. Under the supervision of Dr. Nicola Gasparini, she completed her master’s project on tuning perovskite composition for filterless photodetectors, and more specifically she systematically studied how different percentages of lead iodide passivate the perovskite active layer. Her PhD project will now focus on the synthesis of organic semiconducting molecules and the fabrication of near-infrared organic solar cells and other optoelectronic devices.
I really enjoyed my time as a member of the CDT-ACM. It provided the opportunity to gain experience with a wide range of materials characterisation techniques and to engage with the wider research community by participating in conferences and Outreach events.
