Biography / Academic Interests
Dr. Jinís research interests include structure design, synthesis, characterization and optimization of organic optoelectronic materials for improved performance in devices such organic solar cells, light emitting diodes and field effect transistors.††
Dr. Jinís research aims at controlling the hierarchical structure of ?-stacked organic semi-conducting materials to improve their performance in optoelectronic devices.††Molecular and supramolecular engineering approaches are applied to tune the magnitude and order of intermolecular ?-orbital overlap in self-assembled organic ?-conjugated materials.†††Design goals include optimizing the phase behavior, improving the charge carrier mobility and manipulating the electronic spectrum.†††One emphasis is on generating liquid crystalline ?-conjugated materials with a controllable hierarchical structure.†††These soft materials are promising candidates in the field of photonics and electronics.
