Abstract:

This two-year DRI is intended to address the Armys need for two-dimensional, conformal, large-area electronics by developing techniques that will lead to the printing of conducting organic materials as a primary build-block that will enable such low-cost, large area applications. In the first year, we worked on developing novel organic based molecules using the donor-acceptor design concepts and developing a more fundamental understanding of donor acceptor molecule stacking in order to guide future material designs. During the second year, the team will improve the ARL-08 materials and integrate these materials into flexible display with the Armys Flexible Display Center FDC. The fundamental materials research will be integrated into diode devices to evaluate the device properties as a function of the material formations.
