  • Focuses on various "substrate independent, large throughput" technologies
  • Presents a comprehensive landscape of the new applications enabled by substrate independent, high throughput electronic technologies and their business potential
  • Explains the link between innovation in technology and in products
  • Provides the reader with a clear understanding of the technology and the research challenges in the field

Organic and printed electronics can enable a revolution in the applications of electronics and this book offers readers an overview of the state-of-the-art in this rapidly evolving domain.  The potentially low cost, compatibility with flexible substrates and the wealth of devices that characterize organic and printed electronics will make possible applications that go far beyond the well-known displays made with large-area silicon electronics. Since organic electronics are still in their early stage, undergoing transition from lab-scale and prototype activities to production, this book serves as a valuable snapshot of the current landscape of the different devices enabled by this technology, reviewing all applications that are developing and those can be foreseen.  

  • Provides a complete roadmap for organic and printed electronics research and development for the next several years;
  • Includes an overview of the printing processes for organic electronics, along with state of the art applications, such as solar cells;
  • Discusses light emitting diode (OLED) displays, including the different types of OLED pixels in commercial use and in development, and gives insight into the most relevant display and backplane issues;
  • Provides an overview of OLED for lighting applications, including a description of the materials, physics, architecture and benchmarking of OLED lighting devices, as well as fabrication methods, reliability and commercial applications;
  • Reviews the state-of-the-art of chemical sensors based on organic electronic devices;
  • Offers a vision for the future of organic electronics based on organic thin film transistors (OTFTs), including applications such as organic RFIDs and smart objects enabled by the integration of OTFTs with sensors and actuators.
