Uncovering Ion-Electron Interactions in Organic Mixed Conductors

Project description

Research sheds more light on the dynamics of mixed ion–electron conductors

Organic mixed ion–electron conductors (OMIEC) hold great promise for use in bioelectronic devices due to their low impedance, soft mechanical properties and ability to transduce ionic signals to electric currents. However, limited understanding of these fundamental interactions prevents such conductors from moving into the commercial stage. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the UMICs project plans to study the spatial distribution and electronic structure of ions in OMIEC films by using scanning transmission electron microscopy. Furthermore, optical microscopy will shed more light on the transport properties of ion and electron charge carriers.
