ICFO (G. Konstantatos´Group) brings expertise in synthesis of colloidal inorganic nanocrystals and quantum dots and development of solution-processed solar cells based on these materials.
Professor Gerasimos Konstantatos joined ICFO from the University of Toronto and has established the Solutionprocessed Nanophotonic Devices group. The group focuses on novel functional nanomaterials, nanostructures and devices for optoelectronics, sensing and renewable energy applications.
Gerasimos, after completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Patras in 2002, moved to University of Toronto to receive the M.A.Sc and Ph.D. in 2004 and 2008 respectively all in Electrical and Computer Engineering. His work from his phd studies has led to the foundation of Invisage technologies (www.invisageinc.com), a start-up working on high fidelity quantum dot image sensors. His scientific work has been published in 30 journal publications, 7 of which in Nature-family and has received broad media coverage including the Financial Times and the Economist. In 2012 he was awarded the TR35-Spain MIT Tech. Review award for his contributions in colloidal quantum dot photodetectors.
