The Delcamp Research Group
Our Goals: The Delcamp laboratory is primarily interested in converting photons into desirable energy forms. We have three main focuses for accomplishing this goal: 1) generation of electrical energy, 2) generation of chemical energy, and 3) generation of emitted NIR/SWIR photons after photon absorption. Employing advanced synthetic and molecular design strategies will result in the development of novel building blocks which will be amendable to a diverse array of organic electronic applications. Additionally, in order to convert a highly oxidized carbon source (CO2) into a more readily usable form, we aim to design catalytic systems capable of facilitating multiple synergistic chemical processes.
A Reminder: The Earth literally only has one energy input. We may choose to hope nature uses this energy to replenish what we take accordingly or design systems which can convert this energy directly into desirable forms.
