Organic Semiconductive Polymers for Field Effect Transistors Solar Cells and Light-Emitting Diodes

CTCN Keyword Matches:

Polymers that incorporate dithienosilole (DTS) an organic molecule containing silicon are promising materials for high-performance solar cells field effect transistors and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). University of Florida researchers have developed a compound called dithienogermole (DTG) that replaces the silicon in DTS with germanium. The unique properties of DTG increase the semiconductor\'s charge mobility when incorporated into copolymers which translates into higher performance when incorporated into field effect transistors organic solar panels and light-emitting diodes.
