Polymer Electronics

Mark Geoghegan and Georges Hadziioannou


Polymer or plastic electronics offers the promise of a new kind of semiconductor industry; one where materials are easily processed and devices are cheap and, in some cases, even flexible. Polymers can be used in transistor circuitry (chips), sensors, RFID tags, electrochromic windows, and optoelectronic devices such as those used in lighting or photovoltaic (solar) cells. This book presents a coherent introduction to polymer electronics, and in particular the underlying physics of polymer devices. Differences with conventional (silicon-based) electronics are highlighted, so that the main conc ... More
