With her research group Photophysics & OptoElectronics, Professor Maria Loi is conducting fundamental research which should provide the basis for a new generation of solar cells: cheap to make, flexible to use and with a high energy yield which is not solely dependent on sunlight. Maria Loi is a Rosalind Franklin Fellow. In 2011 she received the Minerva Prize. In 2012 she was awarded a prestigious Starting Grant from the European Research Council for her research project ‘Hybrid Solution Processable Materials for Optoelectronic Devices’ (Hy-SPOD). Maria Loi’s research is also supported by the Ubbo Emmius Fund of the University of Groningen.
