Welcome to Tho Nguyen Group

The Nguyen Group focuses on various fundamental spintronic related issues including spin injection, transport and dynamics in π-conjugated organic semiconductors and organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites, magnetism in 2D transition metal dichalcogenides, magneto-plasmonic lattices, and magnet-based metal hydrides. For applications, we are working on improving the performance of organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite solar cells and organic light-emitting diodes using thermally activated delayed fluorescence materials.
