Title of Seminar
"Systematic Development, Synthesis and Applicati on of New ‐Conju gated Compounds for Organic Solar Cell Devices" by Dr. Shreyam Chatterjee

Organic Solar Cell (OSC) is a promising alternative for clean and rene wable ener gy due to their potential to be fabricated onto large area, light-weight fle xible substrates by s olution processing at low cost. Development of new π-conjugated syste ms has become a key factor for the advancement of OSC research into a next level upto commercialization. Systematic developm ent and synthesis of new n-ty pe - conj ugated compounds containing different building blocks such as 2,1,3-benzobisthiadiazole (BTz), naphtho[1,2-c:5,6-c'] bis[1,2,5]thiadiazole (N Tz), fluorinated naphtho[1,2-c:5,6-c']bis[1, 2,5]thiadiazole (FN Tz) etc. their structure-pro perty relationships will be discussed. Furt hermore, a pplication of these newly synthe sized com pounds as nonfulleren e acceptor into OSC device with poly(3-h exyl thiophene) (P3H T) as a wid e band gap donor will be present ed in details.
Brief Profile of the Speaker
Dr. Shreyam Chatterjee (Ph.D.) is from Department of Soft Nanomaterials, Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research (ISIR), Osaka University, JAPAN. He has done is Ph.D from Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, (IACS), Kolkata, INDIA in 2013. His Current Research Interest are development (through DFT calculations), and synthesis of π-conjugated organic semiconductors (small molecule/ polymer) for the application in Organic Electronics such as Organic Solar Cells (OSCs), Organic Field-effect Transistors (OFETs) devices etc.
