Research Interests

Henning Sirringhaus interested in scientific understanding of the charge and spin transport and photophysics of organic semiconductors as well as solution-processible inorganic semiconductors. Organic semiconductors show a rich variety of transport phenomena which are not exhibited by conventional inorganic semiconductors such as silicon.

He also works on high-resolution printing based fabrication of organic devices and applications of these materials in device applications, such as field-effect transistors (FETs) and solar cells.

Using printed FETs as sensing devices enables new ways of making low-cost bio-chemical sensors. So called plastic solar cells are a promising technology to power autonomous sensors.
