Related Meeting Information
The Electronic Processes in Organic Materials Gordon Research Conference was held in conjunction with the Electronic Processes in Organic Materials Gordon Research Seminar. Please refer to the Electronic Processes in Organic Materials GRS web page for more information.

The field of organic electronics has enjoyed tremendous progress since the discoveries in the late seventies of conducting polymers and in the late eighties of efficient electroluminescent devices based on small organic molecules or polymers. Technological progress in this field takes place hand-in-hand with leaps in our understanding of underlying fundamental processes. A key challenge is to understand and, in turn, to control the basic current- and light-driven processes in organic materials.

This challenge is the central theme of this Gordon Research Conference. Questions to be addressed include: How do film structure and morphology affect the fundamental electronic processes in organic electronic materials? What is our current understanding of charge/exciton processes (injection/creation, transport, trapping/decay) in organic electronic materials? What are the optimal materials, morphologies, and device architectures for state-of-the-art organic solar cells, light emitting diodes, and transistors? What are the next opportunities for organic electronics?

The Gordon Research Conference on “Electronic Processes in Organic Materials” will provide an ideal setting to discuss in depth these and related topics with leading scientists from academia, government, and industry. Various sessions will be devoted to debating the questions outlined above, for a conference that will highlight the state-of-the-art in terms of our understanding of the fundamentals of organic electronics. For the first time in the conference’s history, a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS), held immediately before the conference, will provide an excellent opportunity for young researchers to ease into the program.
