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.
Congratulations to Nolan and Nongyi for passing their TBO exams! (April 2016)
Congratulations to Ben and Greg for passing their RP exams and officially becoming Ph.D cantidates! (April 2016)
Our Solar Fabrics collaboration with Marianne Fairbanks from the UW-Madison School of Human Ecology is featured on BTN LiveB1G (link) and WPR (link).
Trisha is interviewed about our new collaboration making solar cells on fabric! (link)
