Ultra-high Charge Carrier Mobility to Elucidate Transport Mechanisms in Molecular Semiconductors (UHMob) is a 48- months multi-site European Training Network (ETN) aimed at enabling multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral training and research in the field of Organic Electronics. It gathers six universities, two research centres, and two companies in Europe who have joint their forces to train 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESR).
The mission of UHMob is to widen the career perspectives of Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) by allowing them to obtain a PhD in a truly multidisciplinary and cross-sectional research environment. The intensive training program, that largely takes advantage of student exchange, is supported by recent scientific breakthroughs of UHMob partners to offer to ESRs the opportunity to carry research at the forefront of Science. Specifically, the scientific objective of UHMob is to gain a fundamental understanding of charge transport mechanisms in molecular semiconductors.
uhmob for science
The scientific objective of UHMob is to gain a fundamental understanding of charge transport mechanisms in molecular semiconductors. To this goal, best-performing and well-characterized materials will be studied by a complementary set of methods, including field effect transistors but also optical methods such as terahertz spectroscopy, field-induced time-resolved microwave conductivity. UHMob will also explore the coupling of molecular semiconductors with the vacuum electromagnetic field, that is a radically new physical concept holding great promises to modulate optoelectronic properties of materials.
