Mastering Morphology for Solution-borne Electronics

Researchers from the Chemistry Department participate in a new project that has been granted 28 MSEK support by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

Professor Ivan Scheblykin (Chemical Physics) and University Lecturer Petter Persson (Theoretical Chemistry) from the Chemistry Department at Lund University participate in a new project ”Mastering Morphology for Solution-borne Electronics” that has been granted 28 MSEK support by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (2016-10-05). The goal of the new project is to make efficient solar cells from molecular semiconductors through improved processing technology and better understanding of how the fundamental molecular interactions govern the structure in these functional materials. The project is a collaboration between researchers from Karlstad University, Lund University, Chalmers, and Linköping University led by Professor Ellen Moons in Karlstad. The research at the Chemistry Department in Lund will focus on material characterization through a combination of spectroscopy, microscopy and computational chemistry.
