Departmental Colloquium


Organic semiconductors: Intrinsic properties and interactions in hybrid systems

Sven Moller
Hewlett-Packard Company, Corvallis OR

Time
 
Mon. August 8, 2005     11:30 AM     Stirling C

Abstract
 

Organic semiconductors exhibit properties that are similar to inorganic semiconductors. While many aspects of semiconductor physics are applicable to conjugated molecules and polymers, their extraordinary optical and charge transport properties make them unique. The fundamental properties of organic semiconductors will be discussed and compared to conventional semiconductors. In particular the nature of electronic excitations and disorder effects will be discussed. For this highly ordered molecular and polymeric crystals as well as disordered systems are investigated systematically. and experimental techniques that allow quantifying these properties will be presented. Besides their intrinsic properties, interactions with different materials systems give rise to new opportunities and challenge and will be discussed.

Refreshments will be available after the talk. Sven Moller is a short-listed candidate for the recently-advertised position in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics.
