Felix R. Fischer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at UC Berkeley. His research focuses on the rational design of novel organic functional materials for applications in molecular electronic devices such as field effect transistors, solar cells, and single molecule sensors. In an effort to control the structure of these materials both on the single molecule as well as on a macroscopic scale – a prerequisite for a superior performance – we take advantage of tools derived from supramolecular chemistry and concepts identified in biologically relevant molecular recognition events. Using a newly developed highly controlled ring-opening metathesis polymerization reaction of strained alkynes the Fischer Group explores routes towards highly defined low-dimensional conjugated carbon-rich materials.
