Title

Organic (Plastic!) Semiconductors

Abstract

Organic materials are finding an increasing number of possible niches in electronic devices. I will give a very brief overview of some of the present and anticipated applications of organic semiconductors and issues in understanding their application. I will then discuss some of our recent experiments on using infrared electro-optics to measure the mobility of charges in organic thin-film transistors and conclude by describing our ongoing experiments to measure the thermal conductivities of organic semiconductors, important for possible applications as thermoelectric power generators.
