Symposium E: Probing electronic processes at organic semiconductor junctions


Full scientific program: pdf Symposium E 480.67 Kb

Organic semiconductors (small molecules, polymers, and supramolecular architectures) are now viable electronic materials with applications ranging from light-emitting diodes for full-colour displays and lighting, photovoltaic diodes, and field-effect transistors, with a high potential for a significant impact on society. These applications depend sensitively on the properties of molecular interfaces, ranging from homojunctions between molecules in bulk phases, heterojunctions between distinct molecular semiconductors, and interfaces with metallic and other conducting electrodes. The essence of organic semiconductor science is the understanding of electronic phenomena at these interfaces. For example, charge transport in semiconductor molecules and polymers is critically dependent on the three-dimensional molecular architecture; electron-hole recombination efficiencies at semiconductor polymer heterojunctions are dictated by the inter-conversion dynamics of charged and neutral electronic species; and novel materials for charge injection into molecular semiconductors require detailed understanding of interfacial charge transfer.

This symposium focuses on all of the above issues and will cover a broad spectrum and many aspects of this interdisciplinary area, bringing together experts in the fields of fundamental physics, chemistry, material science, as well as device engineering.

Topics covered include but are not limited to:
• Design and synthesis of electroactive and photoactive supramolecular and nanostructued materials with tailored interfacial molecular properties
• Processing of electroactive materials and nanostructures to control molecular interfaces in model organic semiconductor systems
• Application of devices to probe electronic processes at organic interfaces that determine transport properties
• Optical probes of phenomena and dynamics at organic interfaces
• Charge injection and energy transfer in novel conductor-semiconductor

Invited speakers:
Paul Barbara (University of Texas), David Ginger (University of Washington), Richard Martel (Université de Montréal), George Malliaras (Cornell University), Iain McCulloch (Merck), Bert de Boer (University of Groningen), Laura Herz (University of Oxford), Joe Kline (NIST), Massimiliano Cavallini (CNR Bologna), Gitti Frey (Technion), Vitaly Podzorov (Rutgers University), Laurens Siebbeles (Delft University), Frank Würthner (University of Würzburg), Jérôme Cornil (University of Mons)
