Organic (Plastic!) Semiconductors

Organic materials are finding an increasing number of possible niches in electronic devices. I will give a very brief overview of some of the present and anticipated applications of organic semiconductors and issues in understanding their application. I will then discuss some of our recent experiments on using infrared electro-optics to measure the mobility of charges in organic thin-film transistors and conclude by describing our ongoing experiments to measure the thermal conductivities of organic semiconductors, important for possible applications as thermoelectric power generators.

Refreshments will be served in CP 179 at 3:15 PM
