Eline Hutter uses advanced spectroscopic and structural characterization to investigate the relationship between the optoelectronic and structural properties of semiconductor materials (a.o. perovskites) and their activity and selectivity as photocatalysts. Her long-term research goal is to find non-toxic semiconductor materials that use (sun-)light to deplete in-house and outdoor air pollutants, which could then be used to add unique functionalities to coatings.
