ONE Lab at MIT

We are large-area nanotechnologists developing the next generation of optoelectronic devices and active surfaces. Our work is guided by physical insights discovered at the nanoscale, and taps the unique properties of molecules, polymers, colloidal quantum dots, and hybrid nanomaterials to form active structures — from solar cells to LEDs to lasers, from molecular switches to chemo-sensors to strongly-coupled excitonic devices — that outperform today's state of the art.

We dare to glimpse into the polaron and exciton dynamics that govern our quantum world. Starting with a fundamental discovery, we build a new device, then a prototype, and then often launch a new technology. Our alumni have used ONE Lab discoveries to develop companies that employ hundreds and make products used by millions.
