WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE A POLYMER LIGHT-EMITTING DIODE?
EE 422/PHYS 422 Polymer Electronics Laboratory
Fall & Winter Quarters
This laboratory course introduces experimental procedures in polymer electronics used to fabricate and test the characteristics of solid state electronic devices. The student will be able to make an electronic device based on a semiconducting polymer and characterize its performance. Students may enroll for either one or more units. Students enrolling for one unit will make and characterize the performance of a solid state electronic device. Students enrolling for more units will also design, carry out, and document an experiment in a manner that is suitable for submission as a peer-reviewed journal article or as a patent application. Pre-requisite EE 347, MATE 340, CHEM 319, or PHYS 340.
1. Substrate Preparation Techniques.
2. Polymer Solution Preparation.
3. Vacuum Evaporation.
4. Device Characterization using the LabVIEW environment.
5. Device Design and Documentation.
