The presence of noncovalent interactions in organic semiconductors has been demonstrated to be beneficial in several applications, resulting in the enhancement of charge transport and device efficiency. Particularly, the incorporation of H-bonds in organic semiconductors has been proven to increase solar cell efficiency by Nevertheless, the race for achieving efficiency records, has hampered research focused on solving other fundamental issues. Regarding H-bonding, no comparative studies have been performed, finding scattered examples in literature. In this respect, this project (TOTALBOND, ANR JCJC) aims to understand the role and impact of hydrogen-bonds in organic electronics with the aim of introducing them in organic semiconductors and applying them efficiently in devices. The candidate will work in a small team of young researchers exploring and characterizing hydrogen-bonded semiconductors based on diketopyrrolopyrrole, isoindigo and NFA materials.
The main activities of the candidate will include:
- Organic synthesis of pi-conjugated materials and hydrogen-bonded materials.
- Self-assembly and optoelectronic properties studies using spectroscopy (UV-Vis, FTIR, CD, CV) and microscopy (SEM, TEM)
- Participation in device fabrication
- Mentoring of younger students
- Presenting in group and institute scientific events
- Presenting the results in conferences
- Manuscript preparation
- Participate in outreach activities for the general public
- Organic synthesis and characterization
- Spectroscopy in solution and thin film
- Experience on supramolecular chemistry
- Experience on pi-conjugated materials and organic electronics
- The candidate must have good team work spirit, be willing to communicate and integrate in an international young researchers team.
- We are looking for a motivated person showing effort and interest, creativity and initiative. The candidate should be open-minded and communicate easily with the rest of the team.
- English language for writing and presenting is required.
Please include a complete CV, two letters of recommendation and a motivation letter together with your application.
The candidate will join Institute Charles Sadron (https://www.ics-cnrs.unistra.fr/) in Strasbourg, one of the most international cities in Europe. The candidate will join the team SYCOMMOR (SYstemes COmplexes Moleculaires et Macromoleculaires ORganises) and more particularly will work under the supervision of Dr. Amparo RUIZ-CARRETERO and will collaborate with two PhD students and one more postdoc. The interaction with the rest of the group and the services of the institute will be fluid and frequent.
