IRG 3: Directed Nano-assemblies and Interfaces for Advanced Electronics
The mission of IRG-3 is to control and characterize interfacial charge transport in directed nano-assemblies. This research is motivated by basic issues that relate to the performance of organic electronic devices, including photovoltaics, field-effect transistors, biological sensors, and memory elements. The scope covers the variety of important interfaces: metal/organic, inorganic/organic, organic/organic, and organic/biological. Our activities involve materials synthesis and processing, assembly, interfacial engineering, device fabrication and characterization. The members of this IRG include synthetic and physical chemists, material and device physicists, and theorists.
