FTP project 'Hybrid semiconductor devices'

The project will run from 1st of January 2013 to 31st of December 2014, and it will be carried out at NanoSYD at the Mads Clausen Institute, University of Southern Denmark and in collaboration with the research group of Prof. Alf Mews at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Universität Hamburg.

This project will focus on the use of organic (carbon-based) and inorganic (not carbon-based) semiconductor nanowires to form a hybrid device. The combination of these material types brings together the good and stable electrical characteristics of the inorganic material and the tunability via chemical synthesis of the organic material. The use of one-dimensional (1D) wires in comparison to thin film structures (2D) provides morphology control and enable the use of advanced characterization techniques with high spatial resolution at the localized nanowire/metal interface and at the organic/inorganic nanowire junction. The goal of the project is via such investigations of the optoelectronic properties to improve the understanding of the basic properties related to charge injection and transport in this new 1D hybrid device to enable improvement and development of new optoelectronic devices.
