MATERIALS FOR NANOLITHOGRAPHY AND ORGANIC ELECTRONICS – Contact

The materials investigated are primarily molecular materials that can play a functional role in electronic and photonic devices or can enable the efficient micro-nano fabrication of such devices. Materials having structural similarities and comparable or complementary properties with the molecular materials investigated, such as metal oxides and 2-D materials, are also considered. In addition possibilities for applications in areas where related material requirements are encountered, as for instance in photocatalysis, biomaterials and industrial coatings, are investigated with collaborative partners.
