Organic semiconductive materials allow for the manufacturing of electronical device components via conventional print procedures. “Printed electronics” is the umbrella term for the innovative development of new materials, which are to make these low-cost technologies competitive. As of yet, his technology is far from reaching the storage capacity and performance of silicon technology, which may even remain to be the case in the future. Nevertheless, this approach still has advantages to offer – especially with regards to fields such as applications for large-scale electronics (display, sensor surfaces, illumination systems, antenna etc.).
In the Organic Electronics laboratory of our Nanoelectronics / Device Modeling research group, technologies for the manufacturing of printed electronical circuits are analyzed and compact models for the description of electrical performances of device components are developed on the basis of organic semiconductors.
Our research group is partnered with the Horizon 2020 EU project DOMINO (Design Oriented ModellINg for flexible electrOnics) as part of the “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions” program. DOMINO is a research association that is concerned with the standardization of compact models for thin-film transistors on the basis of organic semiconductors and amorphic oxides.
