Guest Lecture: Demetrio da Silva Filho

21.01.2020 - 21.01.2020

Demetrio da Silva Filho, professor of physics and head of the materials structure department at the University of Brasilia, invited by laboraory LPPI

Organic semiconductors are known for more than a century but it was only in the past 30 years that intense research has been conducted to move it to practical applications. One of the promising applications, Organic Light-Emitting Diodes,  is already a part of our daily lives. On the other hand, organic photovoltaics is still struggling to reach the performance necessary for commercialization.

 In this talk, after providing a brief introduction to this novel class of materials and its potentials, I will discuss how I have been using Quantum Chemistry to do research geared toward the understanding of the mechanisms behind the operation of these devices in order to improve performance.

 I will wrap-up presenting the topic that brought me to this program: Hybrid Perovskites.  This will be the main focus of my research in the next months.
