Organicand polymer semiconductors have emerged as the foundation for a rangeof new electronic and optoelectronic technologies including organiclight-emitting diodes for displays and solid-state lighting, thinfilm transistors for printed and flexible electronics, varioussensors, and low cost solar cells. Our work is focused on themolecular engineering of materials and devices, encompassingsynthesis, processing, solid-state structure, properties,structure-property relationships, and device applications of bothp-typeand n-typesemiconducting organic and polymeric materials. In this lecture Iwill discuss several examples of our recent advances in these areas,including: (1) n-type small-molecule semiconductors for efficientnon-fullerene polymer solar cells; (2) n-type polymer semiconductorsfor developing all-polymer solar cells; (3) n-type polymersemiconductors for high-mobility transistors, complementary circuits,and electronic memories; and (4) graphene nanoribbons for futurecarbon-based ultrafast electronics and information technologies.


Biography:


SamsonA. Jenekhe holds the Boeing-Martin Endowed Professor of ChemicalEngineering and Professor of Chemistry at the University ofWashington. He graduated from Michigan Technological University witha BS degree in 1977. His graduate studies were at the University ofMinnesota where he received the MS (Chemical Engineering, 1980), MA(Philosophy, 1981) and PhD (Chemical Engineering, 1985). Followingappointments at Honeywell, Inc., Physical Sciences Center,Minneapolis, MN he started his academic career at the University ofRochester, where held the positions of Assistant, Associate, and FullProfessor of Chemical Engineering, Professor of Materials Science,and Professor of Chemistry during 1988-2000. He assumed his currentpositions at the University of Washington in September 2000. Hisbroad research interests are in the chemistry, physics, andengineering applications of conjugated polymers, organicsemiconductors, electronic and optoelectronic devices, materials anddevices for solar energy technologies, self-assembly and softnanotechnology, and polymer science. He has served on the EditorialAdvisory Boards of many journals, including Macromolecules, Chemistryof Materials, Chemical Engineering Journal, and Micro- andNano-systems. He is an Editorial Board member of Molecular SystemsDesign and Engineering, a journal from the Royal Society of Chemistryand Institution of ChemicalEngineers (IChemE).

Hisresearch accomplishments are summarized in over 300 journal articles,which have received over 33,900 citations with h-index of 103,according to Google Scholar. He has also edited three books and wasawarded over 30 US patents. Thomson Reuters (Science Watch, March2011) named him among the top 40 on their worldwide list of “Top100 Materials Scientists of the Past Decade, 2000-2010.” ThomsonReuters, and subsequently, Clarivate Analytics have also namedJenekhe a Highly Cited Researcher in materials science.

Heis a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement ofScience (2003), the American Physical Society (2003) and the RoyalSociety of Chemistry (2015). He was elected member of the WashingtonState Academy of Sciences in 2013. He is the recipient of the 2014Charles M. A. Stine Award from the American Institute of ChemicalEngineers (AIChE).
