Project description
Over the past decades, our ways of living have been revolutionized by several disruptive technological innovations which have changed, and keep changing, the paradigms of modern society. The technologies of tomorrow will address several key global challenges ranging from energy production and resource management to health technologies and digitalization. Often times the basis for disruptive technologies is a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the behavior of materials. That novel technological breakthroughs are inherently connected to fundamental studies of new materials is the guiding theme of the SUPREL project. We will introduce halogen bonding as a conceptually novel design tool for organic electronics, to control molecular packing, and therefore the charge transport and electroluminescence, in organic semiconducting devices. We believe this approach to offer great opportunities in improving the performance of organic electronic, and eventually printed-electronic, devices.
