Chemical doping of organic semiconductors: beating the odds with new performant materials and interfaces
Antoine Kahn, native of France, joined the Princeton faculty in 1979. He is currently the Stephen C. Macaleer ’63 Professor in Engineering and Applied Science, Professor in Electrical Engineering. He has done extensive work on atomic and electronic structures of surfaces and interfaces of semiconductors. Over the past fifteen years, he focused on the structural, electronic and chemical properties of surfaces and interfaces of intrinsic and doped organic molecular and polymer films. Recent work includes (i) the physics and applications of n- and p-type molecular dopants in organic thin films, (ii) the physics of organic/inorganic and organic/organic heterojunctions, (iii) the use of transition metal oxides in organic photovoltaics, and (iv) the electronic structure of hybrid organic inorganic perovskite systems. Kahn has co-authored over 380 refereed regular and review articles. He was the recipient of a Presidential Young Investigator Award (1984-85), of the Joseph Meyerhoff Visiting Professorship (2002) and of the Weston Visiting Professorship (2009-12, 2015-18), Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. He was elected Fellow of the American Vacuum Society (AVS) (1999) and American Physical Society (APS) (2002) and Fellow of the School of Engineering of the University of Tokyo, Japan (2015). He was listed among the “World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds”, Thomson Reuters 2014.
