A. Materials research for organic/hybrid electronic devices

Research topics:

  • Electron/hole transporting interfacial layers of organic optoelectronic devices
  • Material options for improving charge separation and transport in organic/hybrid photovoltaics (OPVs)
  • New optoelectronic devices based on organic semiconductors
  • Emission colour tuning in Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs)

The current research priorities include investigation of a) different material options as charge transporting layers in OLEDs and OPVs, including metal oxides, related solution processible materials and organic molecular layers, and b) new device architectures and manufacturing processes enabled by the versatility of organic material properties. B. Research on organic thin films and molecular layers chemistry for development of new lithographic materials, micro- nanopatterning processes and coatings related technologies Research topics - Investigation of new resist chemistries and photochemical imaging processes - Lithographic materials for nanopatterning and alternative patterning schemes aiming at MEMs, bio-MEMs and related fields - Characterization technology for organic protecting coatings The current research priorities include new lithographic materials based on imaging through polymer back-bone breaking including laser writing processes, patterning processes for biosystems fabrication and characterization of organic coatings used in restoration applications.
