Speakers: Dr. Sebastian Wood

Using measurement to lay new foundations for electronics For the last 50 years, progress in electronics has meant making components smaller and factories bigger, but there are fundamental limits on what can be achieved using traditional semiconductors. Printable electronics offers a completely new paradigm, using organic semiconductors that can be printed onto any surface to make flexible, robust, and lightweight electronics using simple techniques. Scaling-up this technology from a laboratory to a factory is difficult and relies on having accurate ways to measure the properties of organic semiconductors, which we have been developing at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). Dr. Wood will explain how the latest developments in nanometre-scale measurement are laying the foundations for this transformative new technology.
