Improving Organic Transistors that Drive Flexible and Conformable Electronics

UMass Amherst scientists advance understanding of strain effects on performance

(May 5, 2015)  A revolution is coming in flexible electronic technologies as cheaper, more flexible, organic transistors come on the scene to replace expensive, rigid, silicone-based semiconductors, but not enough is known about how bending in these new thin-film electronicdeviceswill affect their performance, say materials scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
