The Organic Semiconductor Optoelectronics group

We study the physics of remarkable plastic-like materials that can conduct electricity and emit light. In addition to being a rapidly advancing field of physics, these materials open new directions in optoelectronics and nanotechnology and can be used for ultrathin flexible displays, printed electronics, solar cells and compact organic lasers.
Residing in the School of Physics and Astronomy we constitute a diverse team of researchers led by Prof. Ifor Samuel and Prof. Graham Turnbull.
The OSO group is also home to modern state-of-the-art facilities, including a purpose-built clean room, advanced femtosecond laser facility and labs for measurements on OLED, solar cell, and laser materials and devices.
