Organic semiconductors for flexible electronics
Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge
Conjugated polymer semiconductors offer new opportunities for the controlled manufacturing of active electronic circuits by a combination of solution processing and direct printing. We will review current understanding of their device physics with a particular emphasis on understanding the electronic structure of polymer heterointerfaces governing the device performance. Recent advances include realization of ambipolar organic transistors which allow easy integration of information processing and light-emission functions. We will also review recent progress towards manufacturing of organic transistor circuits by high-resolution printing techniques for applications in displays and low-cost intelligent labels.
