Explore the use of organic molecular materials and polymers for mechanically flexible displays, solid-state lighting, and large-area solar cells. Currently, devices for such electronic applications have relied heavily on inorganic semiconductors. Compared to inorganics, plastics are lightweight and mechanically flexible. They can easily adopt a wide range of form factors and can be manufactured in large volumes at costs that are a fraction of their inorganic counterparts.
