Surfactant Technology Used to Produce Ecofriendly Semiconductor Ink


Published Date : Nov 29, 2017

At the Energy Science and Engineering department, DGIST a research team has built up an innovation to create naturally well-disposed water-borne semiconductor inks utilizing surfactants, added substances that blend substances of various properties and are utilized as a part of cleanser.

Polymer semiconductors are carbon mixes with the electrical properties of semiconductors. They are viewed as a cutting edge material for adaptable smart gadgets, since they are adaptable and lightweight, as well as in light of the fact that they can be prepared requiring little to no effort through the arrangement procedure. Be that as it may, they cause critical natural contamination, as lethal natural solvents are utilized as a part of the procedure.

In spite of the restrictions, the group has built up a semiconductor surface control method utilizing surfactants for ecologically well-disposed semiconductor producing forms that don't utilize harmful natural solvents. The gathering has created water-borne semiconductor inks. As per the team’s research, the method is required to be connected in different electronic gadgets, for example, P-sort and N-sort transistors and in addition PN diodes, integral inverters, photodiodes as great thin movies.

Prof Dae Sung Chung from the Energy Science and Engineering department, says that this research has brought about a solution to the ever growing problem due to the manufacture of organic semiconductors. They expect the utilization of these semiconductors in a plethora of applications, ranging from solar cells, transistors to image sensors and composite circuits.
