DISCEL Report Summary

Project ID: G5RD-CT-2000-00321
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: United Kingdom

Fabrication of PVD with liquid crystalline semi-conductors

Photo-Voltaic devices will be fabricated in the laboratory using the new discotic liquid crystalline semiconductor synthesized & characterized by non-industrial DISCEL partners.

The various aspects of semiconductor processability as well as device fabrication and performance will be assessed at the lab scale.

The most promising devices will be up-scaled to demonstration stage. A series of potential applications could benefit from this development, such as solar energy use in consumer electronics.

The fabrication of PVD prototypes on plastic substrates will be considered should the economics and attained performance level meet requirements for industrial production and commercialisation.
