Organic field emission transistor, polymer based device, for green and flexible electronics.

The aim of the project is to study and produce an OFET – organic field emission transistor, polymer based device, for green and flexible electronics. The design will consist in a standard geometry, with the gate at the bottom and the source and drain electrodes on top. We will obtain thin layers of semiconductor/ dielectric/ electrodes made of organic and environment friendly materials. The substrate will also be an organic support. 
 

The OFET final system will be design, produced, tested and the capabilities will be defined with respect to Si / inorganic transistor technologies or other organic transistor technologies. 
Organic thin films/ pixels will be produced by clean, laser techniques (matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation - MAPLE and/ or laser induced forward transfer - LIFT). Exhaustive characterization will be performed in order to identify and optimize the critical elements which influence the films / pixels from the point of view of the chemical composition, surface morphology and electrical output. Important advantages arising from our approach using laser based techniques are the low cost, low processing temperature and scalability. 
All the materials processed in IPOD project are environmentally friendly, specially conceived for green, flexible electronics.
