  1. 1. Optical modelling of conjugated polymers : from materials to devices

    Author : Nils-Krister Persson; Andy Monkman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Spectroscopic ellipsomctry; optical modelling; organic solar cell; conjugated polymer; polyfluorene; polythiophene; copolymer; fullerene blend; photovoltaic device; dielectric function; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Measurements and modelling of theoretical properties of polymer-based photovoltaic devices, PPVDs, are the subjects of this thesis. Modelling refers both to modelling of materials, based on extraction of the dielectric function, and to modelling of devices by computer simulation of the optical electrical field inside PPVDs.

    Abstract : Crystallization of C60 and C70 from organic solution often leads to the formation of new solvates and other fullerene compounds. In the present thesis, a number of such solvates were obtained and their phase transitions studied using in situ "in solution" techniques. READ MORE

  5. 5. Synthesis and Properties of Conjugated Polymers for Photonic Devices

    Author : Mattias Svensson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : conjugated polymers; polyfluorenes; light-emitting diodes; solar cells; photoluminescence; electroluminescence; polythiophenes;

    Abstract : The synthesis and properties of new conjugated polymers for photonic devices, such as light-emitting diodes and solar cells is dealt with here. Much work was devoted to increasing the efficiencies of the devices by controlling the properties in thin films of the polymers. READ MORE
