Lecture by Prof. Brigitte Voit.
The field of organic/flexible electronics is rapidly growing and significantly influences our daily life. Yet, persisting problems such as limited performance and long-term stability of large area printed devices lead to a high demand for new, innovative polymeric materials. Besides conducting and semiconducting polymers, also the insulating materials in between – the dielectrics, as well as polymers with special optoelectronic properties are of high mportance. They are indispensable for the cost-effective processability and the final performance of devices e.g. organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organic field effect transistors (OFETs). We will demonstrate novel semiconductor polymers that are highly interesting as stable active materials of high performance printed OFETs. In addition, aromatic hyperbranched polymers have been developed as cross-linkable dielectric materials for OFETs and as materials for substantially improving the efficiency in OLEDs by showing Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescent (TADF) properties or high refractive index (HRI) for increased light out-coupling.
Brigitte Voit, Scientific Director of the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden (IPF), has been Head of IPF Institute Macromolecular Chemistry and Professor of Organic Chemistry of Polymers at TU Dresden since 1997. She obtained a PhD in Polymer Chemistry at the University of Bayreuth, and completed her habilitation at TU Munich.
