Her research interests cover an interdisciplinary area, encompassing the synthesis of new fluorophores for optoelectronics, molecular spectroscopy (photophysics and photochemistry), surface engineering and coatings, optoelectronic devices. She contributed to the setup and start-up of the SmartMatLab facility dedicated to the preparation and characterization of smart materials, thin films and devices.
Her main research activity is focused on:
i. development of visible and near-infrared phosphorescent iridium complexes for optoelectronic and electrochemiluminescence applications
ii. vacuum-deposited and solution processed optoelectronic devices (OLEDs, DSSCs, polymeric and small molecules bulk heterojunction solar cells)
iii. coating films for electrode protection
iv. spectroscopic characterization steady state and time resolved of luminescent materials and molecular systems for exciplex and up-conversion emission
Marta received her PhD in Chemical Sciences (2012) from the University of Perugia working on photocatalysts for hydrogen production and up-conversion of incoherent light. She held a postdoctoral position (2012-2013) at the IMRCP-CNRS in Toulouse working on photopolymerization processes in microheterogeneous systems under the supervision of Dr. Esther Oliveros and Prof. André Braun. Later she was post-doc at the ISTM and ISMAC institutes of the CNR in Milan (2014-2020). Since July 2020 she is researcher at the SCITEC.
