The Imperial College Centre for Plastic Electronics
The Centre for Plastic Electronics at Imperial College London brings together wide-ranging research in the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering to address the design, synthesis and characterisation of PE materials, the design and fabrication of a wide variety of plastic electronics devices (including organic/inorganic hybrids) and the modelling of both.
The Centre is currently working closely with a selection of industrial partners and has a strong interest in industrial and commercial engagement. The research currently undertaken comprises the following themes:
- Materials design, synthesis and processing
- Advanced multi-parameter structural, electrical and optical characterization
- Nanostructure and interface control
- Multi-scale materials and device modelling
- Device fabrication and optimization
At the heart of the CPE is the national Centre for Doctoral Training in the Science and Application of Plastic Electronics. This Doctoral Training Centre seeks to train the next generation of researchers to tackle a wide range of technological and industrially relevant problems in this burgeoning field.
