NANOIDENT AG appoints Prof. Dr. Sariciftci to its Scientific Advisory Board

Linz | Posted on February 06, 2006

NANOIDENT AG, the leading manufacturer of organic photodetectors, has appointed Univ. Prof. Mag. Dr. Niyazi Serdar Sariciftci to its Advisory Board. With immediate effect, the globally renowned scientist supports NANOIDENT AG with his unique scientific knowledge in the area of organic semiconductors, his experience from international research projects and his contacts to outstanding scientists of various disciplines.

NANOIDENT’s CEO Klaus G. Schroeter explained, "We welcome Prof. Sariciftci to our Scientific Advisory Board. He is a visionary and leading scientist, who, together with the discoverer of organic semiconductors, Nobel Laureate Prof. Alan Heeger, has laid the foundations for a new semiconductor industry." Prof. Sariciftci added, "NANOIDENT’s successes in developing the world’s first organic photodetectors reveal NANOIDENT’s potential to significantly advance the development of the organic semiconductor industry."

Prof. Sariciftci is established as a leading scientist in the field of organic photophysics. From 1995 to 2000, he worked side by side with Nobel Laureate Prof. Alan Heeger, the discoverer of organic semiconductors, at Santa Barbara, University of California. Prof. Sariciftci and Prof. Heeger discovered the possibility of photo induced charge transfer in organic donoracceptor systems, providing the basis for organic photodetectors and solar cells. In 2000, Prof. Sariciftci, who is married to a woman from Carinthia, founded the Linz Institute for Organic Solarcells LIOS, which today is the leader in the field of organic photophysics.

Together Prof. Sariciftci and NANOIDENT’s CTO Franz Padinger explored the fundamentals of organic solar cells and are today considered the fathers of organic solar cells. Prof. Sariciftci’s Institute has spawned numerous leading scientists, such as NANOIDENT’s CTO Franz Padinger, Christoph Brabec, Director of the Polymer Research Department of the company KONARKA Inc. or Vladimir Dyakonov, Director of the Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research (ZAE Bayern). The current research work of Prof. Sariciftci is focused on organic field effect transistors (OFETs). Only recently, he achieved another breakthrough in his scientific research activities presenting the world’s fastest OFET, more than 10 times faster than all other existing OFETs.
