Dr Ian Jacobs
Ian Jacobs is a Royal Society University Research Fellow in the Optoelectronics Group of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. He holds a B.E. in chemical engineering from The Cooper Union and a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from the University of California, Davis. His graduate research focused on the use of molecular dopants to control semiconducting polymer solubility and methods for controlling doping in organic semiconductors, with applications to nanoscale patterning. Following his PhD, he was a Royal Society Newton International Fellow in the group of Henning Sirringhaus at the University of Cambridge, where he helped to develop the ion-exchange doping strategy for semiconducting polymers. His current research interests concern the interplay between charge and ion transport in organic electrochemical transistors and doped films, with applications in thermoelectric and electrochromic devices.
