Welcome to the Nanopto research group webpage. Our headquarters are at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC).

About Us

The Nanostructured Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy Harvesting (NANOPTO) research group focuses on producing and characterizing advanced semiconducting structures with the main objective of understanding their fundamental behavior in order to tailor and improve their functionalities and empower different applications in the areas of optoelectronics, energy-related, and sensing devices.


Our group is divided into 4 different Research Lines:


How to speed-up the discovery and optimization of organic photovoltaic materials?

A new paper in Energy Environ. Sci. reviews the emerging field of computational and experimental high-throughput of organic solar cell materials and the concomitant advent of artificial intelligence in the field.
