Paper in Nature Communications!

Great news from the continued collaborative efforts between the Manners and Faul groups (and many other collaborators):  our work on the production of “Uniform electroactive fibre-like micelle nanowires for organic electronics” has just appeared online at Nature Communications!

Well done to Pete (funded by the BCFN for his PhD and now working for NuNano, Edinburgh), Xiaoyu (now at BIT in Beijing, China), Liam, and others on some very exciting science!  We describe studies of field-effect transistor devices prepared from solution-processable, low-dispersity, electroactive fibre-like micelles of controlled length from pi-conjugated diblock copolymers. The resulting charge carrier mobility strongly depends on both the degree of polymerization of the core-forming block and the fibre length, and is independent of corona composition.
