Summary on Grant Application Form
This grant application addresses a widely recognised need in academia and industry for reliable and efficient simulation packages for organic devices. The proposal identifies a gap between state-of-the-art solution procedures in applied mathematics and current practice in the physical sciences. Conventional techniques for simulating organic devices are efficient only for relatively simple device configurations and in particular are ill-suited to multilayered structures or devices operating in pulsed node. The research programme outlined here aims to exploit recent advances in applied mathematics to create a robust simulation package for organic devices. The proposal constitutes a new collaboration between Dr. John de Mello and Prof. Donal Bradley from the Centre for Electronic Materials and Devices and Prof. Jeff Cash from the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London. Prof. Bradley and Dr. de Mello specialise in the physics of organic devices. Prof. Cash specialises in the development of ordinary differential equation solvers. It is expected that their joint collaboration on this programme will yield new approaches to organic device simulations suitable for complex device configurations that have so far proved intractable using conventional techniques.
