Sirringhaus Lab

We are a group of physicists, chemists, materials scientists and electrical engineers interested in the fundamental charge, spin and thermoelectric physics of organic systems. Though our range is diverse, we have particular interest in novel organic semiconductors as well as hybrid organic-inorganic metals and semiconductors. The unique properties of these molecular materials presents fascinating physical phenomena that cannot be observed in their conventional inorganic counterparts. Moreover, it creates opportunities to improve the performance and efficiency of energy-conversion devices, storage technologies and low-power computing. With this in mind, our main thrust of research is toward thermoelectric waste-heat harvesting, spintronic devices and the design of field-effect transistors for large-area, flexible electronics.
