2018 Gordon Research Conference: Electronic Processes in Organic Materials

2018 Gordon Research Conference: Electronic Processes in Organic Materials

Prof Derya Baran is invited to provide a talk on Charge Seperation in Organic Photovoltaic Devices, at the 2018 Gordon Research Conference: Electronic Processes in Organic Materials​.

Conference Description

The program of our GRC meeting spans a range of topics at the frontier of organic and hybrid electronics and optoelectronics. Areas of traditional strength such as carrier transport or separation in organic semiconductors and devices, physics of organic interfaces, and molecular and polymer semiconductor development will be explored along emerging topics of organic spin physics, metal halide perovskites, organic bioelectronics and novel applications of molecular doping in devices. Considerable benefit results from creating opportunities for cross-fertilization between these various sub-fields. As an example, the unusually rapid progress seen in the development of halide perovskite materials and devices over the past five years can be attributed in part to lessons learned over two decades on key aspects of thin film organic (opto)electronics, such as exciton physics, interface electronic structure, or thin film solution processing. Likewise, bioelectronics has greatly benefited from a better grasp of electronic structure, carrier transport and surface and interface characteristics of organic semiconductors, and from access to the flexible substrate and electrode infrastructure enabled by this technology. Gathering under the same roof for five days of intense discussions senior and junior theoreticians and experimentalists experts in these various subfields will therefore undoubtedly contribute to further understanding and progress in the area of organic and hybrid thin film electronics.

The GRC meeting will be immediately preceded, and will greatly benefit from, a two-day Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Electronic Processes in Organic Materials, run by graduate students for graduate students, post-docs and other scientists from the highly interdisciplinary community of organic electronics.
