The goal of the Organic and Polymer Path is to establish a basic research program on novel materials, devices, and modeling and systems design. To give this basic research a clear orientation, the research is organized around specific technologies for future applications: Given the features of the technologies available at the TUD and TU Chemnitz, three corresponding application technologies are targeted: novel organic displays, printed audio systems with integrated power audio amplifier, and wireless data transmission.
The research is organized into six Research Modules (RMs) (see scheme). This Path will integrate the expertise of the two new Strategic Professorships Organic and Polymer Materials (SP1) and Organic Devices (SP2). The first is needed for the development of new materials and the second will help to broaden the basic work on transistors and other organic devices. Both will be installed with internationally acclaimed researchers in this field.
