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.
