Semiconducting and metallic polymers by Alan J Heeger( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of semiconducting and conducting polymers has become one of the most attractive areas of interdisciplinary materials science and technology. Ranging from physics, chemistry, electrical and electronic engineering to the optical sciences, this field covers a wide range of competences and interdisciplinary knowledge."--pub. desc

Program for research on conducting polymers by Alan J Heeger( Book )

5 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and held by 4 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

Polyacetylene, (CH)x, is the simplest possible conjugated organic polymer and is therefore of special fundamental interest. In a series of studies, Shirakawa and Ikeda have shown that it can be prepared in the form of lustrous, silvery, flexible, polycrystalline films having any desired cis/trans content by catalytic polymerization of gaseous acetylene, C2H2. The cis-rich films can be stretched easily at room temperature in excess of three times their original length with concomitant partial alignment of the (CH)x fibrils. Dark red gels of toluene in (CH)x may be prepared using a lower catalyst concentration. Highly porous, very low density, 'foam-like' (CH)x can be obtained from these gels. Both cis- and trans-(CH)x are p-type semiconductors which can be treated with a variety of p- or n-type dopants with concomitant increase in conductivity to give a series of semiconductors and ultimately, 'organic metals.' This report will be directed primarily towards f description of the more chemically oriented aspects of (CH)x and its derivatives. (Author)

Nonlinear Optical Properties of Conducting Polymers( Book )

3 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation presents the results of transient (subnonosecond) photoconductivity and electroabsorption spectroscopy of a variety of organic conjugated polymers. Although these two techniques may initially appear unrelated they actually probe many of the same quantities. In particular it will be shown that both techniques can provide information regarding the intrinsic anisotropy of quasi-one-dimensional polymeric systems. In addition, both experiments provide a sensitive measure of sample quality. Keywords: Polymers; Photoconductivity; Electroabsorption; Conjugated polymers; Molecular physics. (kt)
