Title: Organic Semiconductors: Opportunities (and Obstacles) to Technological Application
Abstract: Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) were introduced into commercial application in the early 2000’s and are now used regularly in phone screens and high-end TVs, while organic photovoltaics and transistors have not found the same technological success. In this talk, I will cover some of the fundamental performance and physical reasons that these devices are hindered while OLEDs flourish. Looking into the future beyond traditional electronics, I will discuss the unique physical properties of organic semiconductors that make them suitable for the development of room temperature spin-based and excitonic devices.
