Solution-processable conducting films with extreme work functions
24 Nov 2016. NUS scientists, in collaboration with scientists at Cambridge Display Technology Ltd (CDT), a subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd (SCC) have developed novel solution-processed conducting polymer materials with an unprecedented ultrawide range of work functions from 3.0 to 5.8 eV. These materials enable high quality, low resistance electrical contacts, called ohmic contacts, to be attained for advanced semiconductor devices which are important for flexible electronics. This work was reported in Nature today. DOI: 10.1038/nature20133
