The Chemical Optosensors and Applied Photochemistry Group (GSOLFA) performs R+D activities that span from the molecular engineering of tailored (indicator) dyes to analytical chemistry in the field. The combined experience of our team members covers molecular spectroscopy, fiberoptic sensing, photochemistry, optical and laser-based analysis, chemical synthesis and HPLC. Longstanding contract research for private and public companies, deep knowledge of the end-user needs and collaboration with the best national and international groups back up our many years tradition of applied and basic research for improving the human quality of life.
