Organic optoelectronic materials: next generation semiconductors
Grant number: DP0451189
Designed conjugated organic and polymeric materials will be prepared and evaluated as the active layer in optoelectronic devices, particularly light emitting displays (LEDs), field effect transistors (FETs) and solar cells. Improved materials with stable blue emission will be developed. Advanced organometallic conjugated polymers will harness the lost triplet energy as phosphorescence in LEDs and so raise potential device efficiency in the vicinity of 100%. Active layer materials in FETs will have improved supramolecular order and processibility to improve charge mobility, while the photovoltaic materials will be developed to show non-dispersive hole transport properties. The patterned depos..View full description
