Materials for Organic and Hybrid Optoelectronics
A variety of organic and inorganic materials are used in fabricating optoelectronic devices. While the active layer of the device often consists of a blend of organic small molecules or conjugated polymers, transport layers and electrodes are often inorganic. We explore a range of new materials for optoelectronic application and investigate their optical, structural and electronic properties.
Conjugated polymers with thermally cleavable side chains
New acceptor molecules
In collaboration with the group of Prof. Uwe Bunz, we are investigating the use of N-heteroacenes as acceptors in organic photovotaic devices.
