The objective of this course is for students to gain an understanding of the basics of electronics from a chemistry standpoint, as well as the current state of and issues with organic electronics. Students will also learn to think about the position of this domain in the energy field, and its future prospects. In the first half of the course, students will broadly study basic topics related to semiconductors, which are important for studying organic electronics. In the latter half, students will study the electrical properties of organic and inorganic substances, and deepen their understanding of applications for electronics materials.
By the end of this course, students will have the following abilities:
1) To explain fundamentals and principles of semiconductor properties.
2) To explain principles of sensor and emitting devices for applications of semiconductor.
3) To understand principles and features of organic devices.
4) To design organic meterials for electronic devices.
