Optically switchable transistors

Researchers from the Université de Strasbourg (France), in collaboration with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany), Stanford University (USA) and the Université libre de Bruxelles (Belgium), demonstrated that high-performance optically switchable field-effect transistors can be developed by blending photochromic molecules with small organic semiconducting molecules. Such multifunctional organic devices are considered as key elements … Continue Reading ››

Prof. Ebbesen awarded Kavli prize!

THOMAS W. EBBESEN – Physical chemist and director of the University of Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Study, Strasbourg, France. Upending accepted theory, he discovered that light could be transmitted very efficiently through holes smaller than its own wavelength with the involvement of surface plasmons, the interaction of light with electron waves on metal … Continue Reading ››

Graphene–organic composites for electronics: optical and electronic interactions in vacuum, liquids and thin solid films

DOI: 10.1039/C3TC32153C (Feature Article) J. Mater. Chem. C,2014, 2, 3129-3143

Graphene exhibits exceptional mechanical, optical and electrical properties that are unfortunately accompanied by poor processability and tunability of its properties. The controlled interaction of graphene with tailor-made organic semiconductors (OSs) can offer a solution to solve these two … Continue Reading ››
