2019 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit

Symposium EP06-Organic Electronics—Materials and Devices

Organic and hybrid electronics have continuously been a popular research area for the next generation flexible, stretchable, and large-area electronics. From new semiconductor materials, characterization methods, device structures to novel application, all are developing at a rapid pace. Recently, different novel processing approaches have been reported that gain insight into device and material physics. Furthermore, improving their compatibility with scalable low-cost manufacturing is also an important cornerstone towards mass production. These newly developed materials, fabrication methods and structures allow one to dictate the limitations of organic electronics and provide better understanding of both material and device properties. This symposium will explore the fundamental physical properties of the organic semiconductors, electronic device physics as well as the novel applications enabled by the new processing methods and techniques. The symposium will cover various organic devices including solar cells, transistors and light emitting diodes, as well as emerging devices such as temperature/bio-sensors. The symposium will consider a range of organic and organic/inorganic hybrid material systems and their associated processing, microstructure, and device performance.

The meeting will provide a forum for interaction among university and industry, researchers and practitioners, representing different perspectives across the value chain. The discussion will focus on the new paradigms for small molecule and polymer semiconductor processing methods. This symposium will assist in accelerating the adaption of processing methods between universities and industry and speed up the development of organic electronics.

Topics will include:

  • Ink-jet and vapor jet printing
  • Transfer printing, stamping and screen printing
  • Novel solution and vapor processing of large area devices​
  • Additives and doping during material growth
  • Device applications with non-planar, conformal, or stretchable behavior requiring unique processing strategies or materials synthesis​
  • Miscellaneous Technologies and applications​
