Project Collab: Organic Electronics (Dr Woon Kai Lin, University of Malaya)

Our research focuses on efficiency and performance of the materials and devices. By studying the charge transport, interfacial barriers, energy levels of organic semiconducting materials, exciton confinement, exciton dissociation, synthesis of various novel organic semiconducting materials, molecular modelling and correlation between molecular structure and device properties, we hope to achieve devices with very high performance. We fabricate various devices such as organic field effect transistors, organic phototransistors, organic light emitting diode, organic photovoltaic and smart organic electronics. We also actively patent our new findings.
