Fume hoods, glassware, rotory evaporator, oven, fridge analytical balance: everything you need to synthesize novel materials and polymers.
UV-Vis Absorption Spectroscopy and Fluorescence Spectroscopy (Ocean Optics) are used to characterize the optical properties of new materials.
Electrochemistry is used to measure the oxidation and reduction potential for new materials.
Obtaining electronic grade purity for organic molecules is necessary prior to organic electronic devices integration. This level of purity is obtained by train sublimation. The small molecules sublime under vacuum and travel down a temperature gradient and condense at different distances depending on molecular mass. This salable technique is an effective way to obtain highly pure materials.
Environmental Probe Station
This station is a custom designed probe station for the characterization of organic thin film transistor (OTFTs) under high vacuum and under controlled environments. Thanks to the help from Elemental Instrumentation and Kreus Design this probe station is unique and ideal for characterizing next generation OTFT-based gas sensors.
Organic Electronic prototypes are fabricated in our custom physical vapour deposition system. The system was assembled by Angstrom Engineering and is equipped with 6 thermal evaporation sources, combinatory shuttering, substrate heating stage, shelf with robotic arm for in-situ mask changes and more. The chamber is built into a dual glove box to facilitate inert transfers of substrates into the chamber. The glove boxes are equipped with built in spin coater and vacuum oven to facilitate solution processing of films prior to thermal evaporation.
