Professor Paul Mulvaney FAA FRSC is a materials chemist who focusses on the use of semiconductor nanocrystals as excitonic materials for solar energy conversion, sensors and security labelling. He is interested in exciton transport in nanocrystal systems and self-assembly of nanocrystals.
Mulvaney's group is developing new semiconductor nanocrystals for use in luminescent solar concentrators (Platform 1.1) and printable photovoltaics (Platform 1.2). He is also doing basic studies into nanocrystal self-assembly (Platform 2.3) and single QD spectroscopy (Platform 2.3). He works closely with DST on fluorescence based sensors (Platform 3.1), QD LEDs with CSIRO (Platform 3.2) and RBA on new security features for polymer banknotes (Platform 3.3).
