Symposium "Organic Optoelectronics and Photonics" (SYOO)
Organic semiconductors are of steadily growing interest as active
components in electronics and optoelectronics. Due to their flexibility,
low cost and ease-of-production they represent a valid alternative to
conventional inorganic semiconductor technology in a number of applications,
such as flat panel displays and illumination, plastic integrated circuits
or solar energy conversion. Although first commercial applications of this
technology are being realized nowadays, there is still the need for a deeper
scientific understanding in order to achieve optimum device performance.
This symposium will give an overview of the physics behind organic optoelectronic
and photonic devices and highlight recent developments in this field.
