Professor Sir Richard Friend is Cavendish Professor of Physics and part of the Optoelectronics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge.His research interests cover: 1) Conjugated Polymers, in particular the development of new semiconducting polymers (with Dr. A. B. Holmes, Department of Cambridge and Melbourne Universities). Characterisation of properties in semiconductor device structures, including: – Polymer Light-Emitting Diodes, Thin-Film Field-Effect Transistors and Photovoltaic and Photoconductive Diodes:  2) Time-resolved optical spectroscopy: Sub-picosecond time-resolved spectroscopy, with 100fsec ‘white-light’ laser system, used to study formation and evolution of excitonic and polaronic electronic photoexcitations:  3) Molecular conductors and magnets, the investigation of charge-transfer complexes containing pi-conjugated molecules showing metallic, antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic behaviour.
