As a key component in printed organic electronics, organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) have received much attention in recent years in multi-disciplinary areas including chemistry, physics, materials science, and electrical/electronic engineering. This phenomenal surge in research activities in OTFTs from the mid-1990s is driven by their potential in such electronic applications as large-area flat panel displays, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags,bio-/chemo-sensors, etc. via low-cost printing techniques. Xerox has been working on the development of printable high-performance semiconductors, conductors, and dielectric materials through judicial structural design. This presentation will describe Xerox’ approach to the design of printable organic electronic materials. Organic Semiconductors may have the most significant impact on microelectronics since the introduction of CMOS technology. ITAC announces that Paul Smith, Laboratory Manager, XRCC, will be its featured speaker at the next Toronto area SMC Best Practice Forum, taking place at XRCC on Thursday February 22 from 12 pm to 1:30 pm.
