ORGANIC OPTO-ELECTRONICS (OOE)

 

We aim to understand fundamental opto-electronic processes in organic and molecular semiconductors and exploit them for organic electronic applications, with a main focus on photovoltaics. Charge carrier generation and recombination in these materials are dictated by the properties of excited electronic states at organic donor:acceptor interfaces, such as excitons and charge transfer states.

We search for structure-property relations, guiding the synthesis of new materials with improved performance in devices such as solar cells, photo-detectors and light emitting diodes.

The OOE-group is headed by professor dr. Koen Vandewal.
