Inorganic materials for printed electronics
Functional metal oxides for electronic applications
The successful IREP student will conduct synthetic work towards the synthesis of inorganic molecular complexes suitable for thin film metal oxide preparation. He will be involved in the formation of thin films by spin coating, dip coatiing and ink jet printing. He will learn how to characterizatize the obtained thin films by appropriate spectroscopic and microscopic characterization techniques. As functional properties he will study the electronic properties, e.g. the electrical conductivity and the semiconducting behaviour of such films. All studies will be conducted under the guidance of an experiencied second or third year PhD student. With his engangement in the project the IREP student will support ongoing research activities in the laboratories of the PI.
Two IREP student(s) can work on this project.
Pre-requisites or requirements for the project
Interest in synthetic work in a chemistry lab. Basic knowledge of synthetetic chemistry (inorganic, organic) is needed.
