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 ››

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 ››
