Organic semiconductors & molecular wires have many emerging applications, e.g. display devices in mobile phones, in photovoltaic solar cells, and potentially in restorative medicine. Work just published using the CLF's ULTRA facility provides fundamental insights into the mechanisms of charge transport, useful in guiding the design of better materials and therefore improved devices!
