Summary
Electronic devices made of organic materials have certain advantages that other, inorganic devices miss. The materials that have been developed so far are however not efficient enough and are thus unfit for an area-wide application. This is due to fundamental processes on the molecular and nuclear scale which determine the storage and transportation of the charge. These processes are determined by a complex interplay of material compositions and their interactions. The Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research uses numeric simulations in order to examine and understand these processes.
