Molecules and composites for optics (MCO)

  • Activity

The design and characterization of new molecular photoactive materials are at the heart of our group "Molecules and Composites for Optical" created in January 2011.

The materials currently under consideration have mainly interesting properties for nonlinear optical switching, optical storage (photochromic), and photodynamic therapy.

The ruthenium nitrosyl complexes offer a large variety of physical-chemical properties. In particular, they are of great interest in optical data storage as well as for therapeutic applications.

The activities of the group cover both the synthesis of ligands, complexes and the study of their physicochemical properties. They also involve the analysis and prediction of these properties on the theoretical level in order to guide the experimenters towards optimized synthetic targets.
