Liquids to semiconductors: the formation of solution-processed electronics (ARC Discovery Project administered by Macquarie University) (2018–2021)
The goal of this proposal is to understand and control the formation of solution-processed organic
semiconductors. We will create unique experimental methodologies to study, in situ, the evolution of the structure
and the emergence of electrical transport all the way from the initial solution to the final film. We will use these
findings to formulate design rules and principles that will accelerate the development of solution-processed
semiconductors beyond current trial-and-error approaches. This can unlock the potential of soft and flexible
semiconductors for new technologies based on sustainable manufacturing.
