Polymer scientist to speak on organic electronics
Young Kim, a polymer scientist specializing in plastics applications in electronics, is addressing a plenary session of the May 1-5, 2011 event.
Kim is the director of the Material Technology Center of the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology, Samsung Group’s central research institute. He’ll be speaking on the paradigm shift to organic electronics.
Compared to conventionally used inorganics, organic electronics have advantages such as agile molecular-level design and synthesis, facile fabrication options, and raw material supply.
Kim will review the issues he confronted in trying to apply polymers as electronic materials, such as chemical and physical stability.
He’ll discuss how recent uses of organic materials in active applications such as POLED displays, hybrid photovoltaics, thin-film transistors, and polymer memories have been promising.
ANTEC will be held at the Hynes Convention Center and the Boston Marriott Copley Center Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts.
