2 U NIVERSITA DEGLI S TUDI DI P ADOVA Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat2 Basic questions Is it possible to do electronics with molecules? What sort of molecules to use? Carbon-based, similar to those used by biology, e.g. for photosynthesis How will we manipulate and position molecules to create the architectures we want? Transport molecules in solution (as biology does) Assemble molecules in correct juxtaposition through use of weak intermolecular interactions (e.g., hydrophobic vs. hydrophilic)

3 U NIVERSITA DEGLI S TUDI DI P ADOVA Corso CFMA. LS-SIMat3 Plastic electronics Plastics (or, more correctly, polymers), are traditionally used within the electronics industry as passive materials, for encapsulation or for their electrically- insulating properties. However, there is now a class of polymers which can behave as semiconductors or as metals. Our understanding of the semiconductor physics of these materials has enabled us to use them as the active components in a range of devices. Polymer light-emitting diodes, LEDs, providing full color range and high efficiency as well as solar cells show particular promise. The electronic behavior of these polymers is very different from inorganic semiconductors such as silicon or gallium arsenide. Polymer electronic devices require different strategies to make them useful. In some respects, these strategies resemble those already adopted by biology, for example in photosynthesis.
