Meeting The Challenges Of Organic Electronics

(Nanowerk News) Michael Edelman, CEO of Nanoco Technologies presented some of the latest developments in the company s material at the Challenges in Organic Electronics conference at the Core Technology Facility in Manchester. The conference kicked off with a talk by Sir Richard Friend, Cambridge University Professor and founder of Cambridge Display Technology (CDT) and Plastic Logic.
Printed electronics represents a huge opportunity for the quantum dots produced by Nanoco , said Michael Edelman, We were delighted to have been asked to speak at this well attended conference
A recent report has estimated the global market for printed electronics at $100bn by 2020 rising to $300bn by 2027.
Organic electronics accounts for the majority of this market. However, there are many challenges that need to be overcome to bring a wide range of organic electronic devices to the market.
The Challenges in Organic Electronics conference took place on Monday 5th November and Tuesday 6th November 2007 and addressed two key issues:
1) Research activities that address the major challenges in the chemistry, processing and physics of organic transistors, sensors, OLEDS and photovoltaic devices.
2) The key challenges to industry in bringing this groundbreaking technology to the marketplace
Nanoco introduced its Inorganic Quantum Dots to the audience and showed its latest developments in the area of Organic Electronic Devices.
