Symposium SF04—Solution-Processed Semiconductors and Devices for Form-Free Displays, Logic and Sensors
This symposium covers the progress of novel printable semiconductors and related devices for form-free logic circuitry, displays, and sensing.
Solution-processable electronic materials offer a unique gamut of attractive properties including an endless library of possible compounds for continuously improving opto-/electronic properties, processing versatility, and compatibility with arbitrary substrates. Although recent years have witnessed tremendous progress of such materials, the ultimate goal is their incorporation in state-of-the-art devices for various emerging applications. Progress has so far been driven primarily by a virtuous circle of materials synthesis and device engineering, which in turn has led to the proliferation of numerous families of semiconductor technologies based on organic, organic-inorganic hybrid and low-dimensional nanomaterial inks. These new materials and processing paradigms combined with improved device architectures enable overcoming traditional limitations to increase their use for several application sectors.
This symposium will cover advanced solution-processable materials and inks, processing of thin films, fabrication of electronic devices, physics of device operations, and applications in logic circuitry, display, and sensing. Emphasis will be placed on devices including transistors and diodes for form-free integrated circuits, displays, or sensing applications. The symposium will bring together scientists and engineers from various disciplines and will consider a wide range of material systems covering solution-processable organics, metal oxides, hybrids, 0D, 1D, 2D and mixed-dimension printable materials.
