Soft Semiconductor Group

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.

Investigations:

Singlet Exciton Fission
Solar Concentrators
Magnetic Logic
Integrated Organic Electronics

The group is led by Professor Marc A. Baldo
