Group Overview
The Pecunia Group of Thin-Film Optoelectronics is a multidisciplinary research group working in the area of emerging solution-processible semiconductors for large-area optoelectronics and energy applications. The group was founded and is led by Prof. Vincenzo Pecunia. 

We are based at the Institute of Functional Nano & Soft Materials (FUNSOM) of Soochow University, China. We have a wide range of state-of-the-art experimental facilities within our own group's laboratories (Materials and Device Lab and Physical Characterization Lab) as well as within our Institute. 
Our research is at the intersection of physics, materials science, and electronics engineering, and involves the investigation of environmentally-friendly, solution-processed semiconductors, such as organic semiconductors, lead-free perovskites, amorphous metal-oxide semiconductors, and carbon nanotubes. We focus on the experimental characterisation and conditioning of the optoelectronic properties of these materials, as well as their device applications in thin-film transistors, solar cells, and photodetectors. By gaining detailed understanding of their optoelectronic and device properties, we seek to rationally realise the full potential of these semiconductors for large-area optoelectronics and energy applications.

Our team consists of a mix of postdoctoral researchers, research assistants, postgraduate students, and undergraduate students with multidisciplinary background in physics, materials science, electronics engineering, and chemistry.
