Wake Forest Researchers Develop Plastic-based Flexible Electronics for Wide Applications

SpecialChem - Aug 31, 2011

Plastic-based flexible electronics, produced in large volume using roll-to-roll processing, inkjet printing or spray deposition, is the "electronics everywhere" trend of the future, says Oana Jurchescu, Assistant Professor of Physics at Wake Forest University. And the key to success in this market will be the low-cost production of large molecular structures with excellent electronic performance. Jurchescu, her two graduate students Katelyn Goetz and Jeremy Ward, and interdisciplinary collaborators from Stanford, Imperial College (London), University of Kentucky and Appalachian State have developed just such an organic semiconductor. In the current consumer market, the word "electronic" is generally associated with the word...
