Group of Polymers
Non-linear optics: instrumentation.
B.Sc. in Physics from Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (1991), M.A. in Science from University of California at Berkeley (1994) and Ph.D. in Physics from University of California at Berkeley (1998), working with nonlinear vibrational spectroscopy of interfaces. Held a post-doc position at the University of California at Santa Barbara (1999-2001), where he used ultrafast pump-probe spectrocopy to investigate charge carrier photogeneration in semiconducting polymers. Was appointed Assistant Professor of Physics at Sao Paulo State University (Unesp) at Bauru (2001). In 2003 took the position of Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Sao Paulo (USP), located in Sao Carlos - SP, Brazil, and became Associate Professor in 2015. Has experience in physical chemistry of interfaces, focusing on using sum-frequency vibrational spectroscopy to investigate the molecular arrangement at interfaces (adsorption of water and oil on minerals, polyelectrolyte thin films, electrochemistry, Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett films and self-assembled monolayers). Another research topic includes the use of optical absorption, photoluminescence and time-resolved spectroscopy to investigate charge photogeneration and recombination or energy transfer in conjugated semiconducting polymers.
