Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics Distinguished Lecture

Primary tabs

The Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics welcomes University of Southern California Professor Mark Thompson, on "Exciton Management in Organic Solar Cells" as part of its Distinguished Lecture Series.

Dr. Mark E. Thompson received his B.S. degree in Chemistry in 1980 (U.C. Berkeley) and his Ph.D. in chemistry in 1985 (California Institute of Technology). He spent 2 years as a S.E.R.C. fellow in the Inorganic Chemistry laboratory at Oxford University. Prof. Thompson took a position in the chemistry department at Princeton University in 1987, as an assistant professor. In 1995 he moved his research team to the University of Southern California, where he is currently a Professor of Chemistry. He currently has over 250 peer reviewed publications and over 100 issued US patents to his credit. His research interests involve the optical and optoelectronic properties of molecular materials and devices, particularly organic LEDs and solar cells, as well as nanoscale materials, catalysis and biosensors.
