Dr. Denis Fichou is a Research Director 1st class at CNRS, Paris, France, and a Full Professor at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He is the current head of the “Organic Nanostructures and Semiconductors Laboratory” at Pierre & Marie Curie University in Paris, and also leads the “Sustainable Materials for Energy Laboratory” at the School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences in NTU, Singapore. In the 80s D. Fichou has pioneered the field of organic electronics. Prominently he is the co-inventor of the first organic transistor on a flexible substrate (Adv. Mater. 1990) thus opening the era of flexible electronics. Since then, he has developed several types of organic semiconductors and organic devices, in particular the widespread family of oligothiophenes. Today his research is oriented towards the design of organic and hybrid photovoltaic solar cells as well as new oxide-based photoelectrochemical systems for water splitting and energy storage. He has published more than 180 peer-reviewed articles in international journals such as Nature, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano, JACS, etc. Besides, he is the holder of 10 patents and the editor and co-author of several books including the Handbook of Oligo & Polythiophenes (1999, Wiley-VCH, >900 citations). His publications have been cited over 6.200 times, h-index=41 (ISI Web of Science).
