Has the time come to replace traditionally used silicon with printable organic semiconductor inks? University of Surrey scientists believe so, especially for future electronics that need to be flexible, lightweight, wearable and low-cost.
Dr Julia Ponce-Gonzalez in the Department of Chemistry has published an open access paper in the Royal Society of Chemistry's Energy and Environmental Science (Impact Factor 25.43).
Professor Jonathan Seville, President of IChemE and the former Dean of Surrey’s Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, gave the opening address at the IChemE Awards dinner in Kuala Lumpur, which was attended by HRH Tuanku Zara Salim.
The Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences covers the core engineering disciplines of aeronautical engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, electronic engineering and mechanical engineering alongside the specific disciplines of chemistry, computing, mathematics and physics.
