Congratulation to Cecilia Teixeira da Rocha for the successful defense of her PhD thesis with the title: "Improved Organic Semiconductor Thin-Film Formation through the Addition of Vibrations to the Solution Shearing Method"
All the best to you, Cecilia. We wish you a good start into your new career.
Franz Loose, Schüler am Martin-Andersen-Nexö-Gymnasium Dresden, hat beim Regionalwettbewerb „Jugend Forscht“ am 06.02.2020 in Freital mit seiner cfaed-Forschungsarbeit den dritten Platz in der Kategorie Physik belegt. Mit seinem Projekt zum Thema „Herstellung biologisch abbaubarer Feldeffekttransistoren“ konnte er die Besucher und später auch die Fach-Jury begeistern.
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.
