Welcome to the
Nanostructured Spintronics Lab
(aka the Andrew Lab) at the University of Wisconsin!
We are synthetic chemists and device engineers interested in:
(1) Understanding spin transport in organic semiconductors
(2) Synthesizing chromophores containing spin 1/2 moieties
(3) Fabricating large-area organic nanostructured devices
We are experts in molecular semiconductor and conjugated polymer synthesis, and optoelectronic device fabrication.
We use a mixture of traditional organic synthesis, ultra high-vacuum physical vapor deposition, chemical vapor deposition,
sputtering, and e-beam deposition to make unique materials and devices containing open-shell (radical) materials.
