Flexible, large-area, low-cost electronics potentially have a huge market potential. Some studies reportedly indicate that the organic-electronics market will even exceed the size of the silicon semiconductor market as it is today. Rollable (or flexible) displays and low-cost electronic labels (e.g. RFID tags) are only two of the 'killer applications' associated with organic transistors. To comply with this promising future, the effort in research and development at Holst Centre is focused on novel materials, device structures, and processing methods that will further help the organic electronics industry.
