The Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden e. V. and its Association of Supporters invite you to the 10th IPF colloquium.
Organic electronics is the basis for a rapidly growing technology that is anticipated to compete successfully with conventional microelectronics in the near future in such areas as electroluminescent devices (flexible displays and lightening devices), solar cells, energy storage devices, etc. Sensors, actors, and smart/self-reporting materials have been built based on semi-conducting polymers or functional polymer composites. The main advantage of organic technologies over silicon technologies is the possibility of making low-cost, large-area electronics by solution processing, such as by dedicated printing and roll-to-roll techniques. With these regards semi-conducting (pi-conjugated) polymers are one of the most promising classes of materials. This Colloquium intends to cover various aspects of smart polymer materials and organic electronics, including materials development and chemistry, transistors, OLEDs, photovoltaic cells, circuits, sensors and manufacturing.

The colloquium is connected with an Industrial Workshop (Nov. 7, 2012 in the morning). It will be organized by the European Centre of Nanostructured Polymers (ECNP). The ECNP will present the centre’s competences and offer cooperation in the field of functional nanostructured polymers and composites. Representatives from industry are welcome to join this event.
