Organic Semiconductors: Opportunities (and Obstacles) to Technological Application

11/08/2019 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm
CP 155
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Emily Bittle, NIST
Type of Event (for grouping events):

Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) were introduced into commercial application in the early 2000's and are now used regularly in phone screens and high-end TVs, while organic photovoltaics and transistors have not found the same technological success. In this talk, I will cover some of the fundamental performance and physical reasons that these devices are hindered while OLEDs flourish. Looking into the future beyond traditional electronics, I will discuss the unique physical properties of organic semiconductors that make them suitable for the development of spin-based devices and room temperature excitonic devices.
