Electric charge transport in thin layers of organic semiconductors, graphene and organic-semiconductor/graphene blends. Initial stages of growth of thin layers of organic semiconductors on graphene and dielectric substrates. Optical, electronic and structural properties of organic semiconductor layers. Electronic properties of graphene and graphene-related compounds. Experimental methods: organic molecular beam deposition, atomic force microscopy, synchrotron radiation photoelectron spectroscopy, transient photocurrent measurements, transport methods, optical lithography. Recently I focus on van der Waals heterostructures, based on graphene and organic semiconductors and two dimensional dielectrics such as hexagonal boron nitride.
- Engineer of Physics, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
- Master of Science (magisterij) Physics, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
- Doctor of Science (Dr.) University of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
- Head and founder of the Laboratory for Organic Matter Physics, University of Nova Gorica. After joining the University of Nova Gorica in 1997, I have established a research group focusing on organic semiconductors. The group was the first in Slovenia performing research on organic semiconductors. The group operates extensive equipment for deposition and characterization of organic semiconductors and organic electronic devices including: glove-box for fabrication of organic solar cells, two atomic force microscopes, a system for transient photocurrent measurements, a system of organic molecular beam epitaxy, and a clean-room with laser-based optical lithography capable of micron-size resolution.
