Electronic and Photonic Molecular Materials Group

department of physics and astronomy


Photovoltaic devices built using organic components.

The Electronic and Photonic Molecular Materials group is based in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Sheffield. We have a long-standing interest in many aspects of the physics and technology of organic semiconductors and organic optoelectronic devices. Current research programmes include study into organic photovoltaic devices (OPVs), organic field-effect transistors (FETs) and organic photonic devices.

Our work is conducted in a series of laboratories and clean rooms for device preparation and evaluation. Micro- and nano-scale devices and structures are also fabricated in the Nanoscience Clean Rooms at Sheffield North Campus. We have access to a range of spectroscopic techniques for basic material science, including ultra-fast lasers and a range of scanning probe microscopes.
