Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials Colloquium Fred Wudl (Tuesday!)


03 May 2011 FWN-Building 5111.0080, Nijenborgh 4, 9747 AG, Groningen
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Fred Wudl
Affiliation: Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA
Title: Recent advances in materials for organic electronics at Santa Barbara
Date: Tuesday May 3, 2011
Start: 16.00 (Doors open and coffee available at 15.30)
Location: FWN-Building 5111.0080


Very low bandgap conjugated polymers (Eg ca 0.6eV) will be presented. These behaved as excellent bipolar organic field effect transistors (OFET) with mobilities on the order of ca 1cm2V-1. The unexpected magnetic behavior of the undoped form will also be discussed.

 In the second part of the presentation a fullerene diad whose morphology can be controlled will be presented. Single nanotube (nanofiber) forms showed a photoresponse.
