DR. BOUDOURIS: My name
is Brian Boudouris, and I am in the School of Chemical
Engineering at Purdue University. I’d like to welcome you to the nanoHUB-U
course Organic Electronic Devices. Now, what exactly is an
organic electronic device? An organic electronic device can be a
myriad of things, and in this course what we’ll learn about are things like
flexible displays for TV and cellphone applications; we’ll talk
about flexible solar cells and how they can be used to
convert sunlight into electricity. In a similar manner, we’ll talk
about thermoelectric devices, and materials based
on this kind of design can be used to convert waste
heat energy into electricity. Throughout the entirety
of this course we’ll link molecules to modules so that
by understanding how materials are designed, you’ll understand
the transport physics, and in understanding
the transport physics, you’ll understand how
to optimize devices. Through this mechanism what
we’ll hope to walk through together is an idea
that will really let us design the next generation of
devices that’ll help power up the future of the globe. With that, I thank you. And I look forward to seeing you on
the nanoHUB-U course Organic Electronic Devices.
