     The laboratory develops new polymer and composite materials for electronic and optoelectronic active components. It is focused especially on organic photovoltaic cells, light-emitting diodes, electrical and optical sensors and field-effect transistors (FET) for flexible printed electronics. The aim is to prepare these electronic components from soluble derivatives of semiconductive or conductive polymers using inexpensive casting or printing techniques.

    The basic research is focused on the phenomena of generation, transport and recombination of free charge carriers, charge transfer on the interface of materials, injection of charge from electrodes, photochromic transformation and on plasmonic phenomena in polymer composites with metal nanoparticles. The laboratory is engaged in the concept of molecular electronics, both on the experimental and theoretical level.
