Course Description

In this class, optoelectronic functions of polymeric materials are discussed on the basis of photochemistry and photophysics. In particular, the importance of designing nanostructures of polymer assembly is highlighted by explaining examples of state-of-the-art applications, which include optical fibers, organic light-emitting diode, and organic solar cells.


Evaluated with the grade on the final test or the quality of report submitted after the final class.
