Summary

This course provides an introduction to organic semiconducting materials starting from fundamental optical and electronic properties of conjugated small molecules and polymers. Furthermore, electronic and optical properties in the solid sate and applications in optoelectronic devices are studied.

Content

1. Conjugated molecules interacting with light (electronic orbitals, optical and electronic properties, photochemical reactions), biological systems
2. Structure and properties of conjugated molecular materials (crystalline materials, polymers, liquid crystals)
3. Applications in electronics and optoelectronics (LCD displays, solar cells, light-emitting diodes, transistors)
