Center of Organic Electronics (COE)

The Center of Organic Electronics (COE), financed by the Strategic Research Foundation SSF, is a collaborative effort between Linköping University, Chalmers University of Technology and Lund University, in developing organic electronics. Activities span from chemical synthesis of novel polymers, fast photophysics and spectroscopy, device development and characterisation, to systems integration and production technology for printed organic electronics. The efforts are focused on organic nanoelectronics (ONE), where nano scale phenomena and geometries in organic devices are studied, on printed organic macroelectronics (TOE) where electrochemical transistors and electrochromic pixels printed on flexible paper or polymer substrate are used to create both logic, addressing and display functions, and in organic optoelectronics (THREE) where polymer photovoltaic devices and light sources are developed.

The leader of the Center of Organic Electronics is Prof Olle Inganäs.



Last day for registration is 12 April !

Center of Organic Electronics (COE) decennial

This is an invitation to join the ten year anniversary of COE, funded by the Strategic Research Foundation and started in 2003, through a symposium on organic electronics in April 22-23, 2013, held at Linköping University. This is the time to collect and present results of COE 2003-2008, with activities in printed organic electronics, organic photovoltaics, and organic nanoelectronics, with the better view offered by five more years of continued research in these and other fields of organic and printed electronics. The program during the two day symposium includes scientific presentations of senior and junior scientists within COE, and within the fields of organic electronics in Scandinavia, presentations from the commercial activities related to organic electronics, as well as laboratory visits to the Printed Electronics Arena at Norrköping. 

Our plenary speaker will be professor Alan J. Heeger, University of California at Santa Barbara, one of the founding fathers in the field of electronic properties of organic solids, Nobel laureate in Chemistry 2000.
The symposium is located at Campus Norrköping April 22, starting at 11 am and continuing with presentations and demonstrations during the day. A conference dinner is held in Norrköping that night. During April 23, sessions continue at the Campus Valla, Linköping, and a bus will take participants there.
A scientific and technical program is in preparation, and will be accessible at https://www.ifm.liu.se/applphys/coe/index.xml
 in February 2013, when also registration for the meeting will be possible.
The COE decennial meeting is supported by grants from Nobelstiftelsen, through the committees for the Nobel prizes in physics and chemistry.
Most welcome!
Olle Inganäs
