Carbon/organic based materials and devices


We have several projects that involve carbon/organic based materials in electronics, photonics and other energy related applications. In most cases we focus on interface issues that are central in determining overall properties of the system. One project involves developing an understanding if the surface and interfaces of crystalline organics such as rubrene, a high mobility organic. We have several projects involving graphene including its exfoliation and functionalization, both essential in many applications. Another project has involved using polymers and polymer/inorganic hybrid materials for photovoltaic applications.
