We have seen a lot of laboratory-scale research on organic and printed electronics being successfully conducted in the leading institutes worldwide. Many of these research institutes are now scaling up their facilities to learn more about the potential for commercialization.
The Georgia Tech Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics (Georgia Tech-COPE) announced the opening of its new facility, located on the second floor of the Molecular Science and Engineering (MoSE) building. The focus of the facility is on the synthesis of organic molecular and polymeric electronic and active materials on larger scales.
Seth Marder, founding director and associate director of COPE, noted that the new facility allows COPE to produce materials in multi-gram quantities.
“This allows for the system-level testing necessary to evaluate materials for commercial applications,” Marder said. “The facility will serve the Georgia Tech community, govern
