In recent years, large-area and printed electronics has gained increased interest due to clear advantages compared to the inorganic counterparts. Specifically, organic electronic devices can be fabricated on flexible surfaces, providing entirely new areas of application, but also more robust devices. Further, organic electronics can be produced at low cost and on large scale/area by conventional production techniques (e.g. printing). Due to environmentally friendly production and the lack of trace elements, organic electronics is also referred to as “green” electronics.
In our research group, we conduct research covering several topics within the field of large-area and printed electronics, including organic and hybrid light-emitting diodes (OLED), photovoltaics (OPV) as well as memories (OMEM) and batteries.
