Organic Electronics: Emerging Concepts and Technologies

Front Cover
Fabio Cicoira, Clara Santato
John Wiley & Sons, Oct 21, 2013 - Technology & Engineering - 464 pages

An overview of the tremendous potential of organic electronics, concentrating on those emerging topics and technologies that will form the focus of research over the next five to ten years. The young and energetic team of editors with an excellent research track record has brought together internationally renowned authors to review up-and-coming topics, some for the first time, such as organic spintronics, iontronics, light emitting transistors, organic sensors and advanced structural analysis. As a result, this book serves the needs of experienced researchers in organic electronics, graduate students and post-doctoral researchers, as well as scientists active in closely related fields, including organic chemical synthesis, thin film growth and biomaterials.

About the author (2013)

Fabio Cicoira (PhD in materials Science and Engineering) is a professor of Chemical Engineering at École Polytechnique in Montréal, Canada. He is known for his studies of organic field-effect transistors, growth of organic semiconductors and organic electrochemical transistors. His activities focus on organic bioelectronics and carbon based electrodes in organic electronic devices. Fabio received his PhD from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland) in 2002 and worked as a researcher at the National Research Council of Italy (2002–2005 and 2007–2011) and as a postdoctoral fellow at INRS-EMT (2005– 2007). He was a recipient of the Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship of the European Commission and a visiting scientist at Cornell University.

Clara Santato (PhD in Chemistry) is, since August 2007, Assistant Professor at the Department of Engineering Physics of Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal (EPM). Before her appointment as Assistant Professor, she worked as Permanent Research Scientist for the National Research Council of Italy. She has been visiting scientist at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and at Purdue University. Her background is in: Organic Electronics: she pioneered the design, fabrication, and optoelectronic characterization of Organic Light Emitting Field Effect Transistors; Materials Science: she synthesized and characterized nanostructured materials for applications in photoelectrochemical solar energy conversion by scanning probe microscopy, Raman micro-spectroscopy, and grazing incidence x-ray diffraction.
