Anne Watson ’12 Uncovers Buried Interfaces of Organic Thin-Film Transistors

posted 2012.06.06 Anne Watson ‘12 has been investigating how certain organic materials play a role in devices including solar cells and transistors. Funded by a Park Enrichment Grant this past spring, Watson has been able to examine a system of locally constructed thin-film transistors composed of all-polymer materials that are cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Using techniques developed by fellow members of the Ade Research Group in the Department of Physics, new information has been obtained that correlates transistor device performance
