Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed), Press Release 24 September, 2019
Our Colleagues from the Molecular Functional Materials Chair at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) have succeeded in synthesizing sheet-like 2D polymers by a bottom-up process for the first time. A novel synthetic reaction route was developed for this purpose. The 2D polymers consist of only a few single atomic layers and, due to their very special properties, are a promising material for use in electronic components and systems of a new generation. The research result is a collaborative work of several groups - including our Chair - at TU Dresden and the Ulm University and was published this week in two related articles in the scientific journals "Nature Chemistry" and "Nature Communications".

The 16th European Conference on Organized Films was held in July 2019 at Université Paris Descartes. Three doctoral students from our chair, Katherina Haase, Cecilia Teixeira da Rocha, and Jakob Zessin joined the conference. And that's not all - Cecilia also gave a talk on the topic of "Coating of smooth ultrathin films for Organic field-effect Transistors". The talk was honored with the "Best Oral Presentation Award" for PhD student talks!
The meetings at the conference were very fruitful in terms of collaborations for the Chair's work. Several attendees were very interested in our work with vibration and solution shearing for ultra-thin and uniform film fabrication. They mentioned setups of their own groups in which our project would be of great utility and we could possibly collaborate with in the future.
We are happy to announce the new paper of our PhD student Yichu Zheng on "Exploiting lateral current flow due to doped layers in semiconductor devices having crossbar electrodes". It was published by "Organic Electronics" - Volume 65.
Congratulations on the new paper to Jakob, Zheng, Nara and Mike. "Threshold Voltage Control in Organic Field-Effect Transistors by Surface Doping with a Fluorinated Alkylsilane" was published by "ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces"
We would like to welcome Zhe Zhang as our new PhD student. Zhe is part of our group since 2016 working on his project work and master thesis. During his studies he was already working in the lab where he could learn a lot form our PhD students. We are happy to have him as a PhD student in a co-operated project together with the Chair for Molecular Functional Materials of Prof. Feng.
Our PhD student Nara Shin (Prof. Mannsfeld’s group) won the cfaed INSPIRE Grant and had the opportunity to visit Stanford University in this summer season. Now she would like to share her experience and impressions with us.
Please read below Nara's report about her stay at Standford University.
Congratulations to Rishi on his new paper. "Alkyl Branching Position in Diketopyrrolopyrrole Polymers: Interplay between Fibrillar Morphology and Crystallinity and Their Effect on Photogeneration and Recombination in Bulk-Heterojunction Solar Cells" was published by "Chemistry of Materials"
