Welcome to the Wilson Lab, the newest research effort in experimental physical chemistry & nanoscience in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto.

We use spectroscopy to understand the excitonic materials that we make, and chart the flow of excitonic energy in the multi-component architectures that we fabricate. We apply this knowledge to build novel optoelectronic devices—particularly those that can interact with infrared light.


Research positions are available for motivated students. Information for graduate students can be found on the Departmental Website, including the Online Application Form. Please contact Prof. Wilson at mark.w.b.wilson@utoronto.ca for further information.


News in brief…

    WilsonLabbers listen to a plenary address from Victor Klimov at QD2018, an international quantum dot conference held this year here at the University of Toronto.

  • 2018-06-25 – QD2018, the 10th biannual conference on quantum dots, comes to Toronto, and WilsonLabbers join a week of scientific discussions and networking with leading global researchers. Particular congrats to Philippe, Minhal, & Christian for well-received poster presentations, as well as Prof. Ted Sargent, Dr. Alex Ip, and Jeannie Ing for masterful conference organizing—including the preview of the stunning displays in the new Lee & Margaret Lau Auditorium in the University’s Myhal Centre for Engineering.

    WilsonLabbers enjoy a Jays’ game at the SkyDome [sic]. It’s not every day Christian gets to wear the vintage jersey!
  • 2018-05-22 – Taking advantage of ticket economics given the Jays’ dismal May, WilsonLabbers venture out to watch GOAT candidate Mike Trout and two-way phenom Shohei Ohtani live at the SkyDome. And the Blue Jays win it!
  • 2018-05-15 – The WilsonLab welcomes soon-to-be 4th year undergraduate Physical Chemistry specialist Reynolds, who’ll be working on commissioning our Angstrom deposition system as part of the Summer Work-Study program.
