Welcome to PY590!!

  This class is designed to give a formal introduction to the basic physical concepts underlying organic materials that are currently of interest in electronic and optoelectronic applications.

  It will be co-taught (by Ade and Dougherty) at an advanced undergraduate level where we expect some past experience with quantum mechanics at the level of a Modern Physics (PY203 or PY407) or Physical Chemistry (CH431) course.  If you haven't had  such a course recently, you might not be prepared to take PY590.

  If you want to save the world by finding new inexpensive solar cell materials or low power lighting materials, this course will give you the foundations.  Alternately, if you just think molecules are cool, you will want to hear what we talk about in the Spring.
