(2017-02-13) - Journal articleAims: This paper continues our study of the foreground population to the Orion molecular clouds. The goal is to characterize the foreground population north of NGC 1981 and to investigate the star formation history in the ...
Very low-mass stars and brown dwarfs in Upper Scorpius using Gaia DR1 : mass function, disks, and kinematics (2017-12) - Journal articleOur understanding of the brown dwarf population in star-forming regions is dependent on knowing distances and proper motions and therefore will be improved through the Gaia space mission. In this paper, we select new samples ...

Novel 4,8-benzobisthiazole copolymers and their field-effect transistor and photovoltaic applications (2017-12-07) - Journal articleA series of copolymers containing the benzo[1,2-d:4,5-d′]bis(thiazole) (BBT) unit has been designed and synthesised with bisthienyl-diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP), dithienopyrrole (DTP), benzothiadiazole (BT), benzodithiophene ...
Exciton lifetime and emission polarization dispersion in strongly in-plane asymmetric nanostructures (2017-12-06) - Journal articleWe present experimental and theoretical investigation of exciton recombination dynamics and the related polarization of emission in highly in-plane asymmetric nanostructures. Considering general asymmetry- and size-driven ...
