The SYNCHRONICS’s project relies on organic and supramolecular materials to study the nature of the basic physics of excited states in condensed matter, but also to develop a wide range of  applications, spanning from optical gain to light harvesting, including photonic applications such as organic amplifiers, switches and lasers.

SYNCHRONICS organises a variety of workshops and schools that are open to the public and actively partecipates in the most relevant international conferences in the field of organic electronics and photonics (check out the Events section for past and future events).

During the two years, SYNCHRONICS has published 18 articles in high-impact factor and peer-reviewed journals (including those of the Nature Publishing Group) and 1 book (check out the Publications section for the complete list of publications). Two articles were included in the “2015 most accessed Energy & Environmental Science articles” collection and 1 article has been included in the Accounts of Chemical Research special issue “Lead Halide Perovskites for Solar Energy Conversion”. Overall, the publications made within SYNCHRONICS received over 250 citations so far.

This project receives funding from the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action European Training Network under the Grant Agreement 643238.
