2019年3月26日，普林斯顿大学Antoine Kahn教授应邀来访我院，我院李述汤院士、迟力峰教授、孙旭辉教授、Steffen Duhm教授等11位教授出席了相关活动。
Antoine Kahn教授做了题为“Beating the Thermodynamic Limit: n-Doping of Very Low Electron Affinity Organic Semiconductors”的学术报告，介绍了研究团队近期的研究成果。Kahn教授领导的国际团队证明了对可裂解的空气稳定的二聚体掺杂剂的光活化可以在主体半导体中实现动力学上稳定和有效的n-型掺杂，以这种方式掺杂的电子传输层可被用于制造高效率的有机发光二极管。Kahn教授的精彩报告使在座师生深受启发，引发了师生们的热烈讨论。
Antoine Kahn, native of France, joined the Princeton faculty in 1979. He is currently the Stephen C. Macaleer ’63 Professor in Engineering and Applied Science, Professor in Electrical Engineering, and the vice-dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. He has done extensive work on atomic and electronic structures of surfaces and interfaces of semiconductors. Over the past twenty years, he focused on the structural, electronic and chemical properties of surfaces and interfaces of intrinsic and doped organic molecular and polymer films. Recent work includes (i) the physics and applications of n- and ptype molecular dopants in organic thin films, (ii) the physics of organic/inorganic and organic/organic heterojunctions, (iii) the use of transition metal oxides in organic photovoltaics, and (iv) the electronic structure of hybrid organic inorganic perovskite systems. Kahn has co-authored over 400 refereed regular and review articles. He holds 4 US patents. He was the recipient of a Presidential Young Investigator Award (1984-85), and was elected Fellow of the American Vacuum Society (AVS) (1999), American Physical Society (APS) (2002) and Fellow of the School of Engineering of the University of Tokyo, Japan (2015). He was listed among the “World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds”, Thomson Reuters 2014. He currently holds a Weston Visiting Professorship (2019-21) at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, and a Visiting Professorship at Chiba University, Japan (2007-present).
