Organic Materials For Electronic Devices

June 19th, 2010 by bender

My primary academic interest lies within the nanometer level design, synthesis and engineering of new organic materials which can function in electronic devices such as organic solar cells, organic light emitting diodes and organic thin film transistors.  I do not limit myself to concepts in either small molecules or macromolecules (polymers) but rather explore both.  Underlying my research is the need to explore and understand the physical processes and properties of the novel materials we design.  I consider my interests to span from the fundamental to the applied and even into development and commercialization.  For example were applicable, I am interested in the development of environmentally friendly and responsible chemical processes which yield our novel materials or their chemical precursors or intermediates.
