5.353 Fabrication of a Polymeric Light-Emitting Device
Focuses on an experiment involving the polymerization of a monomer to produce a high molecular weight conjugated polymer of the poly(phenylene vinylene) family. Students fully characterize the material and use it to fabricate a light-emitting device by spin coating and metal evaporation methods in an inert glovebox environment. Compares the optical absorption and photoemission of the polymer device to the electrically-induced emission. Studies the theory of electroluminescent and photovoltaic devices, including relative energy levels of organic materials and the nature charge carriers in organic polymers. Satisfies 4 units of Institute Laboratory credit.
