Annotation -
Various types of polymer materials and systems of promising for photonics and electronics will be shown and discussed. Their preparation, properties and their use in selected photonic elements (e.g. for polymer light-emitting devices, photovoltaic cells, memory, etc.) will described. Student will gain an overview in the field of preparation and properties of polymers promising for photonics and electronics. Some applications including basic principles of selected devices, their preparation and characterization will be discussed in more detail.
