The research group in functional organic-inorganic hybrids (GFHybrids), created in 2000, was pioneer in Europe in the study of organic-inorganic light emitting hybrids, namely embedding lanthanide centers.
In the last decade, the group has established an international network devoting to these luminescent hybrid materials with more than 30 research groups in Europe (Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Poland, UK, Nederland), China, Japan, Brazil and Australia. Several Ph.D. students have performed joint thesis abroad, Spain (Instituto de Ciencias de Materiales de Aragón, Zaragoza), France (Institut Charles Gerhardt, Montpellier and Institut de Chimie de la Matière Condensée, Bordeaux) and Brazil (S. Paulo State University).
Moreover, foreigner Ph.D. students from laboratories belonging to that cooperation network, from Poland, Brazil, UK, Austria, China, Spain, France and Italy, have performed part of the Ph.D. work in Aveiro (medium term periods, 3-6 months).
RESEARCH LINES OF PHANTOM-G
The research is organized in four research lines that frame the work developed for all the members. The group researches on integrated optics, luminescent solar concentrators, white-light emission and nanothermometry.
EXPLORE RESEARCH LINES
Fruit of research work, some prototypes have been developed in the GFHybrids. Go trough the prototypes page to get some details on the fabricated prototypes and group patents.
As GFHybrids is an experimental research group, most of the research work is developed into the photophysics characterization laboratory. In the Facilities page we present ours synthesis and characterization the main research equipment with the specifications.
