Organic Optoelectronics: Course Description

Graduate students will learn about electronic and optical processes of practical devices in the 'Organic Optoelectronics' OpenCourseWare. The free online course teaches students how to study these processes in organic molecules and polymers that make optical electronic devices work. Students also learn about organic aggregate structures and electronic structures of single organic molecules. The on-campus course was taught by MIT professor Vladimir Bulovic in 2003 as a lecture class followed by recitation sessions. Some of the lecture topics include energy levels, organic molecules, conjugated molecules, organic compounds, exciton diffusion, photogeneration, organic LED's and organic semiconducting lasers. Students also learn how to use vacuum and non-vacuum organic deposition techniques with the lab assignments, which guide them to create their own active organic devices.

This OpenCourseWare includes lecture notes and lab project descriptions. If you are interested in taking this free online course, read the organic optoelectronics course page.
