Summary on Grant Application Form
The national consortium brings together key players in the Uk to make available a wide range of techniques for fabrication and test of a range of highly innovative carbon based devices. It encompasses displays to power devices, MEM's to low cost electronics, and sensors to solar cells. the proposal covers devices made from a wide range of conjugated polymers, oligomers and organic molecules as well as the various forms of carbon: a-C, diamond, and nanotubes. The attainment of devices in materials which have high carrier mobilites and low densities of traps is the major focus of the work.The Physics and Astronomy component will model carbon materials, and especially interfaces between different carbons which have potential for novel electronic systems e.g. arrays of small organic molecules on diamond (like those on Si) which may combine the electronic capability of the molecules with high mobility near-surface conductivity of diamond. The focus will be on the problems specific to interfaces between different carbon-based forms, especially those relevant to nanostructures for electronic applications, and will include studies of the processes to create organised interfaces, in which excited states may be important. Where approriate, mesoscopic modelling will be included. The electronic and Electrical engineering component will characterise films and fabricate specific electronic devices based on such films.
