The photo-Dember effect is a source of impulsive THz emission following femtosecond pulsed optical excitation. This emission results from the ultrafast spatial separation of electron-hole pairs in strong carrier gradients due to their different diffusion coefficients. The associated time dependent polarization is oriented perpendicular to the excited(More)
The use of organic optoelectronic devices such as organic light-emitting diodes and organic photodiodes in micro-optical systems is discussed. Potential applications like optical interconnects and optical sensor systems are examined. Device characteristics including emission spectra, I-V-curves and the dynamic behaviour are analysed. In the combination with(More)
The integration of organic semiconductor distributed feedback (DFB) laser sources into all-polymer chips is promising for biomedical or chemical analysis. However, the fabrication of DFB corrugations is often expensive and time-consuming. Here, we apply the method of laser-assisted replication using a near-infrared diode laser beam to efficiently fabricate(More)
We have realized a 76 MHz white-light differential transmission spectroscopy system. The technique employs a Ti:sapphire laser oscillator and a tapered fiber to generate a white-light continuum spanning almost the full visible to near-infrared spectral range. Using acousto-optical modulation and subsequent lock-in detection, transient relative transmission(More)

We present design considerations for semi-transparent organic tandem solar cells that exhibit both good visible transparency and good power conversion efficiencies. The tandem solar cells show excellent color properties, such as the corresponding transparency color temperature and the color rendering index (CRI), that prevail for high angles of incidence of(More)
