|Co-supervisor:||Prof. dr. David Beljonne|
Three-dimensional conjugated systems with reduced S-T gap
The researcher will mainly work at MOLTECH-Anjou under the supervision of Dr. P. Blanchard, CNRS Research Director, and Dr. C. Cabanetos, CNRS Researcher. The ESR will be trained in organic synthesis and heterocyclic chemistry and analytical methods, e.g. NMR, thermal characterization, optical spectroscopy, and (spectro)electrochemistry. He will also be trained to the preparation and characterization of thin films and organic photovoltaics devices for a rapid evaluation of the results of molecular design.
Prof. Beljonne from the University of Mons (UMONS, Belgique) will also co-supervise this PhD thesis and accordingly, a three months secondment to UMONS is planned for simulation of materials with varied S-T gap. A two-months stay at the Technical University of Dresden (Germany) for processing of organic semiconductor devices and one more month at Heliatek GmbH (Germany) for fabrication vacuum-processed OSCs are planned.
