Printed and organic electronics is a novel and unconventional technology that has the potential to change the world of electronics. This technology offers the opportunity to manufacture low-cost electronic solutions that are not compatible with today’s standard inorganic electronics. To achieve this potential, making accurate measurements on fabricated devices and printable inks will be essential in fully understanding the electrical properties and operational characteristics of materials and devices. Knowing how to reduce various sources of measurement errors will be critical to success. This seminar presents methods and best measurement practices for electrically characterizing printed and organic electronics and materials. Application examples where such measurement principles are required will be discussed.
Those participating in this seminar will learn and understand:
• Measurement techniques required for measuring the conductivity of printable e-inks and I-V characteristics of organic electronics
• Sources of measurement error that will affect such measurements
• Measurement solutions that can be used in printed and organic electronics measurement applications
This seminar is recommended for students, researchers, engineers, and scientists in areas such as materials science, chemistry, nanoscience, and organic/semiconductor device development who wish to get a better understanding of basic electrical measurements.
