Understanding and controlling the energy and charge transport phenomena that occur at the nanoscale, especially at the organic-substrate interface is a key challenge to improve organic optoelectronic devices. This interface plays a determining role in device performance. Moreover, as the products of technology get increasingly smaller, controlling the molecular and electronic environment at this boundary is crucial. Major advances have been made via the bottom-up approach to develop controlled molecular systems, seeking to improve electronic conductivity. However, most of the materials developed don’t result in effective materials for organic devices.

To overcome this, it is essential to understand that the nanoscale is qualitatively different from the molecular and macro scale, and therefore different strategies and tools towards materials design and analysis must be applied to when investigating the nano-domain. This is why, I am interested in the development of integrated, functional 3D nanostructures as the basic building blocks in organic electronic devices.

Lydia Sosa Vargas is a CNRS researcher at the Institut Parisien de Chimie Moléculaire (Sorbonne Université) since 2017. Originally from Mexico, she obtained her PhD in 2012 from the University of East Anglia in the UK. She began her postdoctoral work in Japan that same year at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST-Kansai). In 2015, she joined the Polymer Chemistry team at Sorbonne University as a postdoc before joining the Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS).

Her research interests involve the molecular design and synthesis...Read more
