Victor Gray

Doktorand at Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Applied Chemistry, Polymer Technology

Victor Gray is a Ph.D. student in Kasper Moth-Poulsen’s research group at the Applied Chemistry Department. In collaboration with groups at the Physical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry Departments Victor will develop systems capable of upconverting photons. victor will synthesize the needed molecules and photophysically characterize them. Photon upconversion means that two low energy photons can be fused into one high energy photon. This means that some photochemical and photophysical processes, which otherwise require high energy light (UV), could be run with sunlight. It could also be useful in order to achieve more efficient solar cells.
