Holst Centre develops flexible, large area photodetector-on-plastic technology. Organic photodetectors are investigated for existing imaging technologies as they offer cheap processing methods, they can be prepared on light, flexible and large-area devices and their photophysical and optoelectronic properties can be tuned both at a material and device level. Research on novel materials and device architectures that detect in the near infrared spectrum could open a wide range of applications in different fields (e.g. healthcare, biometry).
- To analyze different material blends to be used as organic photodetectors
- To optimize the performance of the device by evaluating different processing conditions
- To measure the electrical and optical properties of the organic photodetectors
- To investigate innovative approaches to increase photodetection into the near infrared wavelengths
- Knowledge acquisition through literature survey, discussion with other team members, and internal seminars/colloquiums
- Performing device and material characterization: morphological, optical and electrical
- Performing experiments in clean-rooms and chemical labs
- Analysis and presentation of experimental data
- Documentation of results in a technical report
- Presentation of results in internal seminars/colloquiums
- Master or Doctoral student from materials science, nanotechnology, physics, chemistry, electrical engineering or related with both theoretical and experimental skills.
- You have good communication skills in English
- Independent but also a team player
- Experience working in organic electronics is desired
You are an ambitious master student with both scientific and practical skills looking for an internship. You have a physics, chemistry, electrical engineering or materials science background. You are pro-active and independent, at the same time a good team player. Good communication skills in English is expected.
