Focus Area B - Functional Templates
TIDE proposes to use graphene, blue phosphorus (blueP), and hBN as templating substrates. These 2DM share a three-fold rotational symmetry, but vary in conductivity and optical bandgap, synonymous for the strength of electronic interaction with the Molecular Building Blocks from Focus Area A, which can be varied this way. Due to their ultrathin nature, transport or tunneling of charge carriers across the templates is possible, making them ideal candidates for our purpose of investigating molecular templating in OE devices.
