Organic Electronic Devices - Purdue UniversityedX
What you'll learn on the course
Characterization of Organic
Organic electronic devices are quickly making their way into the commercial world, with innovative thin mobile devices, high-resolution displays, and photovoltaic cells. The future holds even greater potential for this technology, with an entirely new generation of ultralow-cost, lightweight and even flexible electronic devices, which will perform functions traditionally accomplished with much more expensive components based on conventional semiconductor materials, such as silicon. Learn more about this highly promising technology, which is based on small molecules and polymers, and how these materials can be implemented successfully in established (e.g., organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs), organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices) and emerging (e.g., thermoelectric (TE) generators) organic electronic modules. In this course you will gain the ability to tie molecular transport phenomena with macroscopic device response such that you will be well-prepared to analyze, troubleshoot, and design the next generation of organic electronic materials and devices. This course has short lectures with quizzes, homework, and exams. This course is the latest nanoHUB-U project in a series offered is jointly funded by Purdue University and the NSF with the goal of transcending disciplines though short courses accessible to students in any branch of science or engineering.
Bryan Boudouris Bryan Boudouris earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota. Before joining the faculty at Purdue University, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests include the design of optoelectronically active polymers, functional block polymer self-assembly, polymer-based electronics, and solar cells. Edward P. Tomlinson Edward P. Tomlinson earned a Bachelor of Science in chemical engineering at North Carolina State University in 2012. He is currently pursuing a PhD degree in chemical engineering under the guidance of Professor Bryan W. Boudouris at Purdue University.
