The research activity is currently focused on the synthesis and characterization of new organic chromophores with emissive properties in solution and/or in the solid state. Particular attention is devoted to the design and study of materials characterized by intriguing photophysics such as aggregation or crystallization-induced emissive behaviour, room-temperature ultralong phosphorescence, mechanochromism. These new chromophores are further exploited for the preparation of hybrid inorganic-organic systems by complexation with metals (i.e. Cu, Ag, Pt, Zn, Cd, etc.) aiming at obtaining materials for applications comprising optoelectronics, sensing, bio-imaging, anti-counterfeiting and low-cost data security.
Dr. Lucenti research interests also involve the study of the second order nonlinear optical (NLO) response in solution and in the solid state of organic chromophores and organometallic complexes or coordination polymers.
