A Transparent Hole Conductor by Combinatorial Techniques for Next-Generation Energy Conversion Devices

Project description

Now you see it, now you don't – missing electrons for invisible electronics

Most of us think of electrons as electricity carriers. Holes are also charge carriers, but they are not physical particles at all. As their name suggests, they are holes left behind when an electron moves from a tightly held position in a valence band to the conduction band, from where it can easily escape. "Movement" of these areas of positive charge is exploited in p-type conductors, which are promising candidates for novel transparent transistor materials, a key enabler of "invisible" electronics. The EU-funded HOCOM project is on a mission to significantly enhance the performance of p-type transparent conductors, bringing that vision closer to reality.
