The Lessard Research Group focuses on the synthesis and characterization of novel functional materials and their integration into organic electronic prototypes. Studying the structure property relationships and engineering of the solid state organization of polymers and small molecules facilitate the enhanced device performance of next generation organic electronics such as organic photovoltaics (OPVs), organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) and electronic sensors. Our student’s projects include synthesizing new materials, studying their optoelectronic properties, engineering devices with these new materials and optimize the final device performance.

The Lessard Research Lab currently supervises students from graduate programs in Chemical & Biological Engineering and Biotechnology. However we would be open to supervising graduate students in Electrical Engineering, Physics and Chemistry in collaboration with a co-supervisor.
