Presentation Title:

Organic Field-Effect Transistors Based on Polymeric Semiconductors

Presentation Abstract:

Great interests have been aroused in flexible functional electronics and photoelectraonics,such as artificial skin, non-volatile memories, photosensors and health monitoring systems.Packed up through van der Waals interactions, organic/polymeric materials have advantages of intrinsic mechanical flexibility. During the past several years, impressive progresses have been made in organic field-effect transistors (OFETs), particularly in conjugated polymer-based FETs.
A few high-performance polymers-based FETs have been developed with a remarkable mobility of more than 10 cm 2 V −1 s −1 , which provides a promising opportunity for applications in flexible displays and wearable devices.
In this presentation, we will report the design and synthesis of a few copolymers with D−A structures exhibiting p-tpye, n-type and ambipolar behavior [16]. Fabrication of field-effect transistors based on theses copolymers, and investigations on their electronic properties are also involved.

Thin – lightweight – flexible: Printed Electronics enabling “electronics everywhere”

Presentation Abstract:

Printed and flexible electronics have experienced a tremendous evolution in the last decades from proof-of-concept devices in research labs to end-user applications in nearly all major market sectors, e.g. automotive, healthcare, wearables and consumer electronics. This is also corroborated by the growing market numbers, showing the shift from technology push to an increasing market pull. This wide range makes it complex and sometimes difficult to track and interpret the progress. Every two years top global companies and technological leaders alike, coordinated by the OE-A, build up a common vision of the coming goals and challenges in this emerging industry. In this presentation we will give an overview on applications and technologies covered by the OE-A Roadmap. We report on status of available products as well as giving a medium and long-term outlook for the different application areas, including: OLED lighting, flexible displays, organic photovoltaics and smart and hybrid systems as well as for the manufacturing technologies and materials needed. In addition, an overview on the international network and activities of the OE-A will be given.
