Flexible and Printed Organic Electronics:
Overview of Printable Materials, OTFT Devices, and Applications
The development of printed electronic device, process and material technologies is attracting significant attention globally in emerging markets and applications related to Internet of Things (IoT) that include low-cost flexible displays, printed RFID tags and wearable biosensors.
Printed organic electronic devices are not only lightweight and flexible, but they provide for manufacturing methods that are low cost and environmentally friendly through reduced capital investment in plant and equipment as well as higher material utilization and lower energy consumption.
Dr. Tokito will speak about the progress being made in furthering the development of flexible and printed electronic devices fabricated entirely with printing processes on plastic film substrates, with an emphasis on advancements at Yamagata University ROEL in developing integrated circuits, biosensors based on organic transistors as well as materials development and printing technology developments.
