Dr David Jones

Research summary

Dr Jones is currently a Research Group Leader developing high performance organic electronic materials for organic solar cells and their translation to large-area printed solar cells. He has developed new classes of high-performance materials with a high-temperature nematic liquid crystalline phase with exceptional materials properties. He is interested in understanding the materials structure-property relationships required in developing new classes of high performance materials. Current research programs: (i) high performance p- and n-type organic semiconductors (OSCs) for organic photovoltaics (OPV); (ii) conjugated semiconductor block copolymers; (iii) materials for singlet fission (iv) thermally activate delayed fluorescent materials for organic electronics; and (v) nanoparticle composites as photocatalysts for direct reduction of carbon dioxide to solar fuels.
