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 primary purpose of the Liverpool part of the consortium is to do the basic science that is needed for the development of a large area integrated circuit process on conjugated polymers: spanning from new circuit principles to synthetic Chemistry. Rather than seeking to expand in-house facilities and materials we propose to make use of those within the consortium. This will speed up the process by which we are able to meet our goals and implement the work industrially. The primary object is to develop a process based on concepts that are capable of increased performance as it is demanded by the user.
