Program for Research on Conducting Polymers by Alan J Heeger ( Book )
5 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This research program consists of a parallel effort directed toward the synthesis of conjugated polymers and the characterization of these polymers through a broad base of physical measurements. The approach involves step-by-step synthesis of new polymer systems using specific synthetic techniques; i.e. the design and synthesis of new conducting polymers. This involves close interaction between chemists and physicists and a constant back-and-forth interplay to characterize new materials and stimulate ideas on new systems. Continuing studies of the chemistry and physics of known conducting polymers is a critical part of the program, since future progress is limited by an in-depth understanding of successful known systems. Recent efforts in the latter area focused on the polyheterocycle, poly(thiophene)

Organic Metals and Semiconductors: The Chemistry of Polyacetylene, (CH)x, and Its Derivatives ( Book )
3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As can be seen from the illustrated Figure, which contains a list of conductivities of common substances, (CH)x is quite remarkable in that its conductivity can be readily modified to span an extraordinarily large range. Considering possible polyacetylene derivatives, replacement of some or all of the hydrogen atoms in (CH)x with organic or inorganic groups, copolymerization of acetylene with other acetylenes or olefins, and the use of different dopants should lead to the development of a large new class of conducting organic polymers with electrical properties that can be controlled over the full range from insulator to semiconductor to metal

Nonlinear Optical Properties of Conducting Polymers ( Book )
3 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program focused on the nonlinear optical properties of semiconducting conjugated polymers. Specific emphasis was on fast time (picosecond regime) measurements of the photoconductivity of semiconducting polymers and on NLO measurements related to the mechanism and origin of the nonlinearity, on attempts to optimize the magnitude of the nonlinear response, and on developing novel methods for measurement. In the NLO area, we succeeded in demonstrating that for conjugated polymers the nonlinear response is highly anisotropic with substantial nonlinearity only when the pump is polarized along the direction parallel to the polymer backbone. In attempting to sort out the NLO mechanism we carried out comparative studies on cis and transpolyacetylene. The larger NLO response from the trans-isomer (larger by at least a factor of 20) shows the importance of the degerate ground state
