Program for Research on Conducting Polymers by Alan J Heeger( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1991 in English and held by 3 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: Polyacetylene, (CH)x, and Its Derivatives by Alan G MacDiarmid( Book )

2 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 2 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

Program for Research in Conducting Polymers( Book )

3 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Principal accomplishments during the past year related to Light Emitting Diodes fabricated from conducting polymers and to the related fundamental scientific and materials issues. Progress has been made toward passivating the low work function electron-injecting contact to the point where stable operation outside the dry box is routine. Transient electroluminescence from polymer LEDs has been reported; RC limited response with rise and fall times below 50 nanoseconds has been achieved. The absence in saturation in pulsed operation implies that such devices can be used in applications which require multiplexing (e.g. displays). Photoconductivity studies of the parent PPV material demonstrate that the absorption and emission arise directly from a Pi-Pi interband transition (rather than a bond exciton). Work during the next year will focus on synthesis of blue emitters as well as a variety of fundamental experiments (enabled by the passivation of the devices) designed to clarify the mechanism and to enhance the efficiencies
