Materials Developed in the labs of STAMI Professor John Reynolds may power Transparent Wood Smart Windows
Transparent wood composites have high strength, toughness, thermal insulation, and excellent transmissivity, and offer a route to replace glass for diffusely transmitting windows. STAMI-GTPN and -COPE Professor John Reynolds' group has used conjugated-polymer-based electrochromic materials and transparent wood to create devices that switch on-demand. The devices exhibit a vibrant magenta-to-clear color change that results from a remarkably colorless bleached state. Published in Chemistry and Sustainability (ChemSusChem).
The Group of STAMI-COPE Professor Bernard Kippelen may have addressed the most significant obstacle to expanding the use of organic semiconductors for thin-film transistors (OFETs) by using a nanostructured gate dielectric. The structure, composed of a fluoropolymer layer and a nanolaminate made from two metal oxide materials serves as a gate dielectric and simultaneously protects the organic semiconductor. The nanostructured gate dielectric enables OFETS to operate with unprecedented stability. Click here for more information.
