The Soft Semiconductor Group seeks to exploit the remarkable diversity of soft semiconductors – molecular materials held together by weak van der Waals bonds. In contrast with the painstaking growth requirements of conventional semiconductors, soft semiconductors can be readily and inexpensively deposited on a variety of materials at room temperature.
We focus on two areas: organic light emitting devices, and low cost solar cells. We also have a growing interest in low energy switches.
