"We study physical properties of organic thin films, structures, and devices. Our fundamental findings are applied to the development of practical optoelectronic, electronic, and photonic organic devices of nano-scale thickness."Marc Baldo is one of the newest members of RLE's large recent contingent of junior faculty. Baldo was appointed Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) in the Spring of 2002. He collaborates closely with his former Princeton University and current RLE colleague, Vladimir Bulovic. Bulovic joined the MIT faculty in 2000 as Assistant Professor in EECS. Together with their students and research staff, Baldo and Bulovic form RLE's new Laboratory of Organic Optics and Electronics. RLE has completed extensive laboratory renovations for the group recently, and additional new research facilities and instrumentation in RLE are under construction for the investigators.

Baldo and Bulovic study physical properties of organic thin films, structures, and devices. Their objective is to reduce the size of active organic layers from the present nano-scale thickness of organic thin films to that of single molecules, with the ultimate goal of probing functionality of single molecules or polymer strands. Their work includes investigations of visible LEDs, solar cells, chemical sensors, electrical and exciton transport in organic materials, heterogeneous integration of biological materials, and novel organic transistors.
