Glassy 2D molecular materials

Modern semiconductor technologies are based on crystalline materials with well-defined physical and electronic structures.However, molecular materials, such as organic semiconductors, may present interesting opportunities through disordered structures.The focus of this project will be on conjugated 2D materials without long-range order: molecular glasses. Through control of the chemical composition, atomic bonding motifs, and lateral size, we will be able to modify the properties of these materials.Our focus will be on synthesising and studying these new materials to better understand the relationship …

Understanding how structure influences electronic properties in molecular films

Organic electronic materials based on small molecules have a range of interesting applications: they enable lightweight, flexible devices that can be biodegradable and very cheap to manufacture.One challenge working with small molecules controlling how they crystallise into a film, since this affects the electronic properties of the resulting device. Since a wide range of parameters affect the way the film crystallises, this can be a complex problem to understand and control.The aim of this project will be to investigate the …
