Symposium ED8—Development and Integration of Organic and Polymeric Materials for Thin-Film Electronic Devices

Thin-film electronic devices based organic and polymeric materials have experienced tremendous development over the last decades. Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), organic photovoltaics (OPVs), and organic field effect transistors (OFETs) have shown many advantages over their inorganic counterparts. Considered as the best display technology, OLEDs have been embedded in today’s smart phones, wearable devices, and televisions. OPVs have achieved power conversion efficiency of ~ 13% in small area devices. Despite these successes, the performance of organic/polymeric electronic devices is still lag behind their inorganic counterparts in a number of aspects, and the potentials of organic and polymeric materials have not yet been fully realized.

This multidisciplinary symposium plans to bring together the world-leading experts on organic/polymeric electronics. This symposium intends to present and discuss the frontiers on the design, synthesis, processing, and integration of organic/polymeric materials for applications in OLEDs, OPVs, OFETs and other emerging thin-film devices. Of particular interest are new material concepts, e.g. thermally activated delayed fluorescence materials, singlet fission organics, non-fullerene acceptors, etc. Experimental and computational studies of bulk and interfacial properties at various length and time scales, self and directed assembly, charge carrier transport, exciton dynamics, and device stability will also be covered in this symposium. As the year of 2017 marks the 20th anniversary for Phosphorescent OLEDs, one of the major achievements in organic/polymeric electronics, a special session “Phosphorescent OLEDs and Beyond” will be dedicated to celebrate it.

Topics will include:

  • Material and device stabilities
  • Phosphorescent OLEDs
  • Thermally activated delayed fluorescence
  • Small molecular organic photovoltaics
  • All polymer solar cells
  • Self and directed assembly of organic semiconductors
  • “Green” synthesis and processing methods
  • Innovations in material and device characterizations
  • Materials for flexible and stretchable electronics, encapsulation, substrate and planarization, etc.
