Joint Event of the MIT·Stanford·UC Berkeley Nano Forum and the IEEE San Francisco Bay Area Nano Council

Organic Electronics
Is the Future of Electronics Organic?

Date: Friday, April 22nd, 2005
Location: Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center, Stanford University

Imagine next generation electronic devices that are printed onto flexible substrates like plastic. This is the promise of the emerging field of flexible electronics where the active materials are deposited in ultra-thin layers onto non-traditional substrates. This new technology movement is significantly enabled by the use of organic materials. The success of OLED's (organic light emitting diodes) has opened the way for consideration of organic materials in many new applications. Organic electronics on flexible substrates promises to be disruptive to a number of large markets, such as electronics, displays, and solar energy. Because of the size of the opportunity, large corporations as well as new technology startups are pursuing the creation of low cost and high performance organic electronic and optoelectronic devices.

Our event will showcase some of the leading researchers and entrepreneurs in the field of organic electronics who will share with us the latest developments in this exciting field. Please join us for an informative evening.
