Abstract [en]

Changes in the contact angle between conjugated polymers surface poly(3-hexylthiophene) [P3HT] and poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) upon electrochemical doping−dedoping in aqueous electrolyte were determined in situ using a Wilhelmy plate tensiometer in an electrochemical cell. The hydrophobic P3HT was less hydrophobic in the oxidized state than in the neutral state; the more hydrophilic PEDOT was less hydrophilic in the oxidized state than when neutral. The tensiometry results were in good agreement with those measured by contact angle goniometry, and further corroborated by the capillary rise upon doping in a fluid cell with two parallel polymer coated plates, another in situ dynamic determination method. The contact angle changes depend on doping potential, electrolyte type, and concentration. We also deconvoluted the surface energy into components of van der Waals and acid−base interactions, using three probe liquids on the polymer surfaces, ex situ the electrochemical cell. The methods and the obtained results are relevant for the science and technology areas of printed electronics and electrochemical devices and for the understanding of surface energy modification by electrochemical doping.

Abstract [en]

The work presented in this thesis concerns surface energy modification and patterning of the surfaces of conjugated polymers. Goniometry and Wilhelmy Balance techniques were used to evaluate the surface energy or wettability of a polymer’s surface; infrared reflectionabsorption spectroscopy (IRAS) was used to analyse the residuals on the surface as modified by a bare elastomeric stamp poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS). The stamp was found to be capable of modifying a polymer surface. Patterning of a single and/or double layer of conjugated polymers on the surface can be achieved by surface energy controlled dewetting. Modification of a conjugated polymer film can also be carried out when a sample is subjected to electrochemical doping in an aqueous electrolyte. The dynamic surface energy changes during the process were monitored in-situ using the Wilhelmy balance method.

This thesis also concerns studies of conjugated polymer-based optoelectronics, including light-emitting diodes (PLEDs), that generate light by injecting charge into the active polymer layer, and solar cells (PSCs), that create electrical power by absorbing and then converting solar photons into electron/hole pairs. A phosphorescent metal complex was doped into polythiophene to fabricate PLEDs. The energy transfer from the host polymer to the guest phosphorescent metal (iridium and platinum) complex was studied using photoluminescence and electroluminescence measurements performed at room temperature and at liquid nitrogen temperature. PSCs were prepared using low-bandgap polyfluorene copolymers as an electron donor blended with several fullerene derivatives acting as electron acceptors. Energetic match is the main issue affecting efficient charge transfer at the interface between the polymers and the fullerene derivatives, and therefore the performance of the PSCs. Photoluminescence, luminescence quenching and the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) together with the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) of the active materials in the devices were studied. A newly synthesized fullerene, that could match the low-bandgap polymers, was selected and used as electron acceptor in the PSCs. Photovoltaic properties of these PSCs were characterised, demonstrating one of the most efficient polymer:fullerene SCs that generate photocurrent at 1 μm.
