Advancing Organic Semiconductor Applications through Acceptor Polymer Development

thesis
posted on 2024-06-28, 01:02 authored by ANDREAS WERNER ERHARDT
This thesis aims to deepen the understanding of acceptor polymers within the context of organic electronics, centering on the development and characterization of new materials. A key theme throughout this research is the exploration of how structural attributes of polymers influence their optoelectronic behaviors, which are critical for rational material design and, subsequently, the efficient application in electronic devices. The research includes the design and synthesis of semiconducting polymers with an emphasis on high electron deficiency and tailored compatibility. Complimented by advanced characterization techniques, such as GIWAXS and NEXAFS, profound insights into the synthesized materials are gained.
