The power efficiency, spectral characteristics, and output directionality of light emitting diodes (LEDs) used for lighting and video display may be tailored by integrating nanostructures that interact with photon emitters. In this work, we demonstrate an approach in which visible-wavelength-emitting quantum dots (QDs) are integrated within a polymer-based(More)
Directed self-assembly (DSA) of block copolymers (BCPs) is an attractive advanced patterning technology being considered for future integrated circuit manufacturing. By controlling interfacial interactions, self-assembled microdomains in thin films of polystyrene-block-poly(methyl methacrylate), PS-b-PMMA, can be oriented perpendicular to surfaces to form(More)
We introduce a new class of spin-on dopants composed of organic, dopant-containing polymers. These new dopants offer a hybrid between conventional inorganic spin-on dopants and a recently developed organic monolayer doping technique that affords unprecedented control and uniformity of doping profiles. We demonstrate the ability of polymer film doping to(More)
Diblock brush terpolymers (DBTs) with different fluorinated methacrylate-based block segments are synthesized through sequential ring-opening metathesis polymerizations and are used to prepare polymer thin films with predictable film thicknesses. These DBTs exhibit preferable substrate vertical alignments within the films, induced by the relatively lower(More)
Here, we report multilayer stacking of films of quantum dots (QDs) for the purpose of tailoring the energy band alignment between charge transport layers and light emitting layers of different color in quantum dot light-emitting diodes (QD LED) for maximum efficiency in full color operation. The performance of QD LEDs formed by transfer printing compares(More)
Dual-functioning displays, which can simultaneously transmit and receive information and energy through visible light, would enable enhanced user interfaces and device-to-device interactivity. We demonstrate that double heterojunctions designed into colloidal semiconductor nanorods allow both efficient photocurrent generation through a photovoltaic response(More)
The high temperature performance oforganic field-effect transistorsbased on a molecular organic semiconductor with intermediate dimensions, namely X2, is evaluated. Hole mobility is stable, even at 200-250 °C. Changes in device characteristics at high temperature are reversible across multiple cycles of high temperature operation. Measurements at high(More)
We describe a high-resolution, high-sensitivity negative-tone photoresist technique that relies on bottom-up preassembly of differential polymer components within cylindrical polymer brush architectures that are designed to align vertically on a substrate and allow for top-down single-molecule line-width imaging. By applying cylindrical diblock brush(More)
