The Organic Electronics and Photovoltaics group, headed by Prof. Aram Amassian, seeks to enable low-cost, large-area, plastic-based electronic and photovoltaic technologies by contributing fundamental and applied knowledge to key areas, including
- design and discovery of new, high performance molecular materials for electronics and energy applications;
- advanced multiscale characterization and imaging of organic materials and their surfaces, interfaces, and blends;
- in situ, time-resolved investigation of low-cost solution processes;
- fabrication and testing of thin film transistors and solar cells, focusing on establishing a process-structure-property-performance relationship.
