Research in the Kittilstved group is focused on developing synthetic methods to prepare novel inorganic materials for renewable-energy applications and spin-based technologies. The materials we study are primarily inorganic semiconductors and related molecular clusters with unique electronic structures that are


To date we have acquired a Cary Eclipse luminescence and photoluminescence spectrophotometer, a Cary 50 UV-Vis absorption spectrophotometer, and a Varian 670 FTIR absorption/emission spectrometer equipped with optional beamsplitters (KBr, NIR Quartz, and UV Quartz), light sources (Mid-IR, tungsten, and
