Andrew Ferguson

Research Activity per Year


Personal Profile

Andrew Ferguson received his doctorate in physical chemistry from Imperial College, researching the photophysical properties of molecular organic semiconductors under the supervision of Professor Tim Jones in the Centre for Electronic Materials and Devices. After his graduate studies, Ferguson joined Garry Rumbles' group at NREL as a postdoctoral researcher, investigating the fate of excitons and carriers in organic photovoltaic material systems, such as conjugated-polymer:fullerene blends, using time-resolved microwave conductivity as well as time-resolved and steady-state photoluminescence spectroscopy. He is now a research scientist in the Chemistry and Nanoscience Center, exploring exciton, carrier, and heat transport in nanoscale and organic semiconductors.
