Biopolymer charge carrier blocking layers for photonics and electronics (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Biopolymers, including deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and nucleobases, have unique electromagnetic and optical properties, such as low optical loss, low electrical resistivity and large bandbap, which make them ideal for use as charge carrier blocking layers. Applications include, organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), polymer dielectric capacitors, and nonlinear (NLO) polymer electro-optic (EO) modulators. They have demonstrated increases in device performance, by as much as 3X-6X, for all three applications. This significantly reduces the constraints on developing new organic LED, polymer dielectric and NLO polymer materials. The most recent results of this work will be presented at the conference.
