Like the brakes that stop cars, a molecular brake exists that can prevent semiconductor chains from slipping, enabling the creation of more groundbreaking devices.

Recently, a joint research team led by Professor Kilwon Cho and Ph.D. candidates Seung Hyun Kim and Sein Chung from the Department of Chemical Engineering at POSTECH, and Professor Boseok Kang from the Department of Nano Engineering at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) developed a technology for high-performance organic polymer semiconductors that exhibit both stretchability and electrical functionality. This study was published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials.
For semiconductors to find applications …
