Westwood, MA, – June 19, 2012 – Dr. Henning Richter of Nano-C, Inc. presented “Fullerenic Materials and their Use in Organic Electronics” during LOPE-C 2012 held this year in Munchen, Germany from June 19th to 21st.
Dr. Richter discussed Nano-C’s latest advances in the commercialization of fullerene derivatives for use as electron acceptors in the active layer of organic photovoltaic devices, including the methodology, scalability and infrastructure for the manufacturing of C60- and C70-PCBM. Further, he described the engineering of new fullerene derivatives with targeted electronic, physical and chemical properties enhanced by quantum chemical calculations, leading to OPV devices with high voltage and optimized charge transport in conjunction with specific electron donor materials.
Dr. Richter outlined Nano-C’s work with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) and their formulation in aqueous inks for use as highly conducting but transparent flexible electrodes in displays, touch screens and related applications. He also presented Nano-C’s progress with leading edge technologies for separating semi-conducting from metallic SWCNT and their use in thin-film transistors and other electronics applications.
LOPE-C covers the latest commercial and technological achievements in organic, inorganic and printed electronics. It represents the entire industrial value chain – from academic research to commercialization.
