Project : Development of infrared photonic devices using organic functional semiconducting materials
Purpose Development of infrared photonic devices based on organic semiconductors with high sensitivity at room temperature
- Development of organic functional semiconductors for near infrared image sensor applications (Bandgap aligned organic functional semiconducting materials)
- Development of high performance infrared photonic devices based on organic functional semiconductors with capability of operating at room temperature
Contents In this project, we develop near-infrared photonic devices based on
organic functional semiconducting materials to overcome of limitations of
inorganic based photonic devices. Photonic devices such as photodiode
is a device to convert electric signals by absorption of light. Therefore,
it has a wide range of applications for photonic devices such as
photometric system. infrared detectors, non-contact temperature
thermometer, optical communication system, smart sensors and internet
of things (IoT).
Futhermore, it would be extended image sensor applications by
integration of photonic devices. Especially, detection of low-light
intensity signals and low-cost fabrication fee is available by reducing of
fabrication process step by using organic semiconducting materials.
