What you will learn
This Soft Electronic Materials MRes course offered at Imperial College London is an interdisciplinary course lasting one year focused on creating and optimising new types of electronic materials and devices for a diverse range of applications.
This thriving area of research targets applications such as:
- Printable photovoltaics
- Light-emitting diodes
- Solar fuel production
- Wearable electronics devices
- Chiral emitters and detector
- Neuromorphic computing
A key attraction of the field is that the materials can often be deposited from solutions enabling devices to be fabricated using printing technologies rather than traditional semiconductor fabrication techniques.
You will cover highly multidisciplinary science during the course. It involves Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering. Research activities are wide-ranging, spanning fundamental modelling of molecules and materials, their synthesis, characterisation, design and processing of devices and sensors, as well as measuring and analysing their performance for targeted applications.
- Organic and inorganic semiconductors with materials synthesis and processing
- Device physics and application and materials characterisation
- Independent Research Project
- Organic thin film and optoelectronic device fabrication & characterisation
- OPV device fabrication
- Computational workshops
- 12 months
