MetadataShow full item record
This lecture focuses on the challenging design, realization, understanding, and implementation of new materials families for unconventional electronics. Fabrication methodologies to achieve these goals include high-throughput, large-area, high-resolution printing techniques. Materials design topics will include: 1. Rationally designed high-mobility p- and n-type organic semiconductors for printed organic CMOS, 2. Self-assembled high-k nanodielectrics enabling ultra-large capacitance, low leakage, high breakdown fields, minimal trapped interfacial charge, and device radiation hardness, 3. Polycrystalline and amorphous oxide semiconductors for printable transparent and mechanically flexible electronics, 4. Combining these materials sets to fabricate a thin-film transistor-based circuitries, 5. The relevance of these advances to unconventional photovoltaics.
