There will be a reception with refreshments at 3:30 PM in the lounge. All interested persons are cordially invited to attend.
In traditional optoelectronics the ability to downscale critical device dimensions has proven extremely successful over the past sixty years in increasing their functionality and performance. These extraordinary developments have been achieved through a virtuous circle of scientific and engineering breakthroughs which have led to the proliferation of information & communication technologies with an extraordinary impact on our daily life and society. However, adopting established manufacturing methods to emerging technologies such as printed optoelectronics, has proven challenging both in terms of technology and economics. This talk will focus on progress being made downscaling emerging forms of large-area optoelectronics through a new fabrication paradigm and their application in a variety of functional devices including, light-emitting nanogap diodes, photo-detectors and rectifying diodes.
