The joint lab SPRINT, for joint-lab for advanced robust printable organic semiconductors, will address the design of new high-performance organic semiconductors, to meet the needs of the French and the European industry in the fields of organic photodetectors (OPDs) and organic photovoltaic solar cells (OPV). The SPRINT laboratory will bring together two very complementary partners: on the one hand the Organic Electronics team of the Materials Integration to Systems Laboratory (IMS, CNRS UMR 5218) of the University of Bordeaux (http://oembordeaux.cnrs.fr), recognized worldwide in the design, fabrication and characterization of OPV and OPD devices, and PCAS, a French Mid-Sized Enterprise specialized in the development and industrialization of complex molecules and polymers, particularly for the microelectronics and organic electronics markets. The complementary nature of the partners makes it possible to masterize the entire R&D cycle of these new materials towards their industrialization and commercialization. The SPRINT joint laboratory will allow, by feedback loop, a dynamic co-development of new semiconductors enabling devices to perform at the state-of-the-art of OPD and OPV while maintaining an acceptable complexity, i.e. an attractive production cost of the semiconductors. SPRINT will focus on the role of impurities from the organic synthesis on the device performances and stability. In particular, the ambition is to define impurity thresholds that are criticial to enable reliable and sustainable materials supply to the OPV and OPD markets.
