Enlightening Polymer Electronic Devices
University of Strasbourg1
The development of multifunctional devices capable to respond to multiple and independent stimuli is one among the grand challenges in organic electronics. The combination of multiple components, with each one conferring a specific function to the ensemble, is a facile strategy to impart a multifunctional nature to electronic devices. The controlled combination of such components and their integration in real devices can be achieved by mastering the supramolecular approach.
In my lecture I will review our recent works on the combination of carbon-based nanomaterials, in particular comprising organic semiconductors, with photochromic molecules (diarylethenes or azobenzenes) in order to fabricate smart, high-performing and light-sensitive (opto)electronic devices such as field-effect transistors and light-emitting transistors and as well as flexible non-volatile optical memory thin-film transistor device with over 256 distinct levels.
