Dr Dimitra Georgiadou is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Experimental Solid State Physics group at the Blackett Laboratory, Imperial College London. She is working under the supervision of Professor Thomas Anthopoulos on the EPSRC Centre's PLANALITH project. In this project she explores the use of a novel patterning technique, adhesion lithography (a-Lith), for the development of solution-processed radio-frequency diodes and circuits, with a focus on the scalability potential of this technique into large-area substrates.
Dimitra received her PhD in Photochemistry/Organic Electronics from the National Technical University of Athens. Before that she obtained a Master’s Degree in Advanced Materials Science from the Technical University of Munich, Ludvig-Maximilians University of Munich and University of Augsburg.
Her research interests range from the photochemical tuning of emission colour of fluorescent and phosphorescent emitters for application in PLEDs to the study of different organic and inorganic materials that can be used as interfacial layers in PLEDs and organic photovoltaics, whereas she has also performed synthesis of mesoporous nanocrystalline TiO2 for application in dye sensitized solar cells. Dimitra is co-author of over 35 publications in peer-reviewed journals. She has gained industrial experience through internships in Procter&Gamble, Italy, and Schreiner Group, Germany.
