the cleanest and most efficient option for direct conversion to
electricity of a wide variety of fuels, from hydrogen to hydrocarbons,
coal 瓦斯, and bio-derived fuels. When operated in the reverse mode, on
the other hand, they are very efficient for low-cost production of
hydrogen from splitting water. Thus, a reversible fuel cell is ideally
suited for large-scale energy storage and conversion, which is vital to
the deployment of renewable energies. However, the commercialization of
these systems hinges on rational design of novel materials of
exceptional functionalities at lower temperatures to dramatically reduce
the cost while enhancing performance and durability.To accomplish this
goal, it is imperative to gain a fundamental understanding of the
mechanisms of charge and mass transport along 苹果平板s, across
interfaces, and through porous electrodes. Further,new protocols must be
developed to control materials structure, composition, and morphology
over multiple length scales. This presentation will highlight the
critical scientific challenges facing the development of a new
generation of reversible fuel cells,the latest developments in modeling,
simulation, and in situ characterization techniques for unraveling
charge and mass transport mechanisms, and the outlook for
future-generation energy storage systems that exploit nano-scale
materials of significantly improved performance.

Printed organic electronics, a technology based on carbon-based
semiconductors that can be processed into thin films using conventional
coating and printing techniques, has been the subject of active research
over the past decades. Due to their ability to be processed at low
temperature, over large areas, at low cost, carbon-based semiconductors
can lead to a new generation of energy-efficient products using
energy-efficient manufacturing approaches. While the organic
semiconductor layer plays a central role, the interfaces that are formed
between the organic semiconducting layer and adjacent oxide layers or
electrodes are also very critical and often determine the overall
electrical performance of the device. In this talk, we will discuss
recent progress in a range of solid-state devices, including organic
light-emitting diodes , organic field-effect transistors , sensors,
organic solar cells, and photodetectors. We will present strategies to
modify and stabilize the electronic properties of interfaces that can
yield devices with improved performance and longer lifetime. Examples of
recent studies to reduce the environmental footprint of this emerging
technology will be provided. We will show that these advances can lead
to disruptive innovations to address some of the world’s greatest



报告内容摘要:Organic semiconductors and hybrid/organic materials
have attracted interest for electronic applications due to their
potential for use in low-cost, large-area, flexible electronic devices.
Here we will report on recent developments pertaining to surface
modifiers and both n- and p-dopants that could impact the charge
injection/collection processes in organic light emitting diodes, organic
field effect transistors, and organic photovoltaic and hybrid
organic/inorganic perovskite devices. We will also discuss the
development of organic and metallo-organic-based dimers as n-dopants and
very briefly described metal dithiolene complexes as p-dopants for
organic semiconductors and their impact of device performance. I will
highlight the application of n-doping for the development of electron
injection layers for organic light emitting diodes , and their use for
doping of electron transport materials which result in high
conductivities and in some cases good thermoelectric performance. In the
case of OLEDs, it will be shown that photoactivation can lead to stable
doping of materials (i.e. the doping induced conductivity remains
relative constant over hundreds of hours) beyond the expected
thermodynamic limit, which would be predicted based on a assessment of
the effective reduction potential of the n-dopant and the reduction
potential of the electron transport material.
