  Symposium T:

Functional Materials For Organic Electronic and Nanotechnology

Over the last fifteen years, enormous progress has been observed in the field of organic and plastic electronics, flexible electronics, and molecular electronics. A first generation of organic light emitting devices starts to be commercialized, and enterprises of organic photovoltaics, lightings, and printed electronics are now in gestation in several countries. In parallel, hundreds of laboratories in different parts of the World are developing effervescent scientific and technological researches in the area of organic and supramolecular materials, which are the base for electronic and optoelectronic devices (diodes, transistors, OLEDs, sensors, etc.). With the advent of techniques for manipulating materials at the nanoscale, both using a top-down and a bottom-up approach, organic-based materials gained an additional drive to become protagonists for the nascent organic electronics.

This symposium will bring together experts in the fields of fundamental physics, chemistry, material science, as well as device engineering. Its objective is to open a Forum for discussion where the quickly growing community of scientists and researchers working on functional materials for organic electronics, and related fields such as organic chemistry, fundamental physics, material properties and device engineering may effectively interact and exchange ideas. The intention is to involve researches until the limit of single molecular devices.

Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:

  • Conjugated organic molecules as functional materials
  • Electroactive and photoactive supramolecular architectures
  • Self-assembly and self-organization
  • Nanofabrication
  • Bottom-up nanopatterning
  • Scanning Probe Microscopies
  • Local properties of spatially confined nano-objects
  • Transport phenomena in organic thin films
  • Organic interfaces
  • Modeling for molecular and organic electronics
  • Optical and electrical properties of thin films and nanostructures
  • Electronic and optoelectronic devices (LEDs, LETs, LECs, solar cells, FETs)
  • Single molecule devices
  • Reliability of devices under controlled conditions
