Co-author of 26 papers, published in international journals or proceedings with peer-review. Owner of a patent application, submitted to the Eureopean patent agency. H-index: 9 (Scopus, October 2016). N° of citations: 251 (Scopus, October 2016). Participation at 10 international conferences and 3 national conferences (5 talks and >15 posters). Referee activity for international journals of the Royal Society of Chemistry and of the American Chemical Society.
The research activity is focused on the investigation of organic charge-transfer (CT) chromophores, both theoretically and experimentally. CT-dyes are an interesting class of organic chromophores, that find applications in photonics, molecular electronics, non-linear optics. CT-dyes are also interesting model systems for the investigation of charge and energy transfer processes. The experimental research activity is mainly devoted to the spectroscopic characterization (UV-Vis, Fluorescence, Raman, and, in collaboration with external research groups, two-photon absorption, Hyper Rayleigh Scattering, excited-state absorption). The theoretical research activity is mainly focused on the development of essential-state models, that rationalize and/or predic the optical properties of CT dyes. Essential-state models are semiempirical methods, and accounts for molecular vibrations and solvent effects. Following a bottom-up approach, essential-state models are also suitable for the description of multichromophoric systems, offering important guidelines to the synthesis of supramolecular systems, optimized for specific applications.
