Organic Electronics: Materials, Manufacturing, and Applications (3527608621) cover image


Edited and written by the leading researchers and engineers from such companies as Philips, 3M, Xerox, Infineon, PlasticLogic, Eastman Kodak, Dupont, AIXTRON, and Hueck Folien, this book presents unrivalled and undiluted expertise from those who know best how to assess the risks, opportunities and where this technology is really heading.
As such, this practical approach complements the more scientific and fundamentals-oriented literature on the market by providing readers with a first-hand insight into industrial activities to commercialize organic electronics. Following an introduction to the topic, including the history, motivation, benefits and potentials, it reviews recent advances and covers all three important facets of organic electronics: the chemical compounds and materials, manufacturing techniques, and the resulting devices together with their current applications.

"Das Buch ist sehr gut strukturiert, und die einzelnen Kapitel sind ausgezeichnet aufeinander abgestimmt. Die Balance zwischen einfuhrenden und vertiefenden Abschnitten, zwischen grundlagenorientierten und anwendungstechnischen Aspekten, zwischen Materialbeschreibungen und Beschreibungen von Funktionseinheiten und Anwendungen ist gelungen...ist dieses hervorragende Buch sowohl Studierenden als auch Forschern an Hochschulen und in der Industrie, die sich fur Mikroelektronik interessieren, sehr zu empfehlen. Auch Chemiker, Physiker, Materialwissenschaftler und Elektroingenieure, die neue Herausforderungen auf diesem faszinierenden Gebiet suchen, finden sicherlich interessante Anregungen. Ihnen allen ist zu raten: Verzichten Sie nicht auf diese Lekture!"
