Materials and applications for large area electronics


Arias, A. C.; MacKenzie, J. D.; McCulloch, I.; Rivnay , J.; Salleo, A. Materials and applications for large area electronics: solution-based approaches. Chemical Reviews. 2010; 110 (1): 3-24.


In this paper we analyze in detail the performance requirements of several large area electronics applications in order to capture what is needed from new materials. We review progress on efforts to create a new manufacturing industry for large area electronics by integrating printing technologies with solution processed electronic materials. Solution processed oxides and carbon nanotubes have been widely used in large area in the past 5 years. In this paper, however, we will concentrate on the synthesis, processing and device performance of polymeric semiconductors.
