Organic electronic applications such as large area displays, organic solar cells, and plastic logic are recent examples of a joined research effort aiming on replacing energy and cost intensive silicon technology by lightweight, low energy cost materials based on organic molecules. Alan Heeger's nobel price in chemistry for the invention of semiconducting and metallic polymers honors some of these activities.

In terms of physics involved, organic electronics combines the molecular point of view with concepts such as molecular orbits, excitations, and energy levels with solid state physics represented by band structure, mobility, and doping. Charge transport in organic electronics is based on electron and hole transport rather than ionic transport as typical for biomolecular systems, however, also concepts from biology such as energy harvesting inspire organic electronics.

The seminar covers recent research highlights including biosensing, solar cells, electronic paper and  more. This seminar addresses in particular master students which have followed the lecture on organic electronics in the summer teaching term.

Topics available

Ambipolar transistor, electronic skin, biodegradable materials for organic electronics, flexible electronics, electrochemical sensors, field effect based sensors, single crystal devices, high resoluton imaging of orbitals, ultrafast processes in photovoltaics, hero devices for photovoltaics, efficent OLEDs, molecular vibration spectroscopy, ion pumping with conducting polymers, vertical transistors, display techniques  

The seminar will be credited if:

(a) at least one presentation is given,
(b) all presentations (missing 2 at most) have been attended,
(c) the student actively participated in discussions
