Summary of "Highly ordered semiconducting polymer arrays for sensitive photodetectors."

Semiconducting conjugated polymers possess attractive optoelectronic properties, low-cost solution processability and inherent mechanical flexibility. However, the device performance is susceptible to the fabrication methods owing to their relative weak intermolecular interaction and inherent conformational and energetic disorder. An efficient fabrication technique for large-scale integration of high-quality polymer architectures is of essential importance in realizing high-performance optoelectronic devices. Here, we report an efficient method for fabrication of polymer nanowire arrays with precise position, smooth surface, homogenous size, high crystallinity and ordered molecular packing. The controllable dewetting dynamics on a template with asymmetric wettability permits the formation of discrete capillary bridges, resulting in the ordered molecular packing arising from unidirectional recession of the three-phase contact line. The high quality of nanowire architectures is evidenced by the morphological characteristics and hybrid edge-on and face-on molecular packing with high crystallinity. Based on these high-quality nanowire arrays, photodetectors with responsivity of 84.7 A W-1 and detectivity exceeding 1012 Jones are realized. Our results provide a platform for integration of high-quality polymer architectures toward high-performance optoelectronic devices.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Microdevices that combine microfluidics technology with electrical and/or mechanical functions for analyzing very small fluid volumes. They consist of microchannels etched into substrates made of silicon, glass, or polymer using processes similar to photolithography. The test fluids in the channels can then interact with different elements such as electrodes, photodetectors, chemical sensors, pumps, and valves.

Projection of near-IR light (INFRARED RAYS), in the 700-1000 nm region, across an object in parallel beams to an array of sensitive photodetectors. This is repeated at various angles and a mathematical reconstruction provides three dimensional MEDICAL IMAGING of tissues. Based on the relative transparency of tissues to this spectra, it has been used to monitor local oxygenation, brain and joints.

An AAA ATPase that binds and severs MICROTUBULES. It specifically recognizes and cuts polyglutamylated microtubules with short polyglutamate tails to promote reorganization of cellular microtubule arrays and the release of microtubules from the CENTROSOME following nucleation. It is critical for the biogenesis and maintenance of complex microtubule arrays in AXONS; SPINDLE APPARATUS; and CILIA. Mutations in the spastin gene (SPAST) are associated with type 4 of HEREDITARY SPASTIC PARAPLEGIA.
