Abstract: Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), organic photovoltaic cells (OPVs) and organic field effect transistors (OFETs) are device elements for a future organic optoelectronics. Maturing from the academic research into the industrial development, such devices are entering the markets. Pure organic nanostructures and organic/inorganic hybrid nanostructures are comparatively studied for devices. This talk gives an overview of materials’ aspect and devices. In order to account for a sustainable future, the applications of biodegradable and biocompatible systems for organic optoelectronics are needed. The use of cheap electronic devices in a large scale will introduce a shift from consumer electronics to consumable electronics. As such the contribution of electronic devices to urban waste is already increasing rapidly today. Therefore, the use of environmentally friendly materials is important. This is the next great challenge to material science in organic electronics. New developments of bio-inspired and/or bio-origin, bio-compatible materials are interesting. Such materials can also be used to interface the biological and biomedical research with the organic electronics field.
Prof Niyazi Serdar Sariciftci received his PhD in physics from University of Vienna in Austria in 1989 and joined the Institute for Polymers and Organic Solids at the University of California at Santa Barbara as a Senior Research Associate in 1991. In 1996, Prof Sariciftci moved to Johannes Kepler University Linz and is currently the Ordinarius Professor for Physical Chemistry.
Prof Sariciftci’s research focuses on the fields of photo-induced optical, magnetic resonance and transport phenomena in semiconducting and metallic polymers. He is the inventor of conjugated polymer and fullerene based “bulk heterojunction” solar cells. Prof Sariciftci has published over 600 publications and with over 40000 citations, he is one of the most cited scientists in material science. He received numerous awards including the National Science Prize of Turkey 2006 and the Austrian Scientists of the Year Prize for Research 2008. He also received the Medal for Humanity of the City of Linz 2009 and the Kardinal Prize for Science of the Archbishop in Vienna 2010. In 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Wittgenstein Prize of Austria. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC), Fellow of SPIE, and member of several societies such as American Chemical Society, Materials Research Society, Austrian Chemical Society and Austrian Physical Society. He was selected as corresponding member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW). Recently, Prof Sariciftci received the TÜBA Science Prize of the Turkish Academy of Sciences (2015).
