6.789 Organic Optoelectronics

Class Info

Examines optical and electronic processes in organic molecules and polymers that govern the behavior of practical organic optoelectronic devices. Electronic structure of a single organic molecule is used as a guide to the electronic behavior of organic aggregate structures. Emphasis on use of organic thin films in active organic devices including organic LEDs, solar cells, photodetectors, transistors, chemical sensors, memory cells, electrochromic devices, as well as xerography and organic nonlinear optics. Reaching the ultimate miniaturization limit of molecular electronics and related nanoscale patterning techniques of organic materials are discussed. Laboratory sessions are conducted in a research laboratory environment with the goal of exposing students to material deposition and device testing techniques.
