Organic Spintronics/Electronics (NNM group research lines)

Here we employ a bottom-up approach to understanding and rational design of organic materials from nanoscale molecular building blocks. We are particularly interested in: (i) persistent radical molecules and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) made thereof, (ii) semiconductor molecular materials for use in organic spintronic/electronic applications (e.g. flexible thin film electronics).
