Novel semiconductor materials such as organics, quantum dots, hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites and 2D materials have generated a lot of interest in the past decade, with promises to high performance, light weight, flexible and low-cost devices, such as LEDs, photovoltaics, sensors etc. Yet, apart from higher end displays for mobile phones and TVs, devices based on these materials have yet to see wide spread commercialisation. In this talk we will explore some of the challenges these technologies face on route to commercialisation. Drawing on historic examples, we will explore how these challenges might be overcome and what new kinds of devices and technologies may emerge in the coming decade.
This talk is organised in collaboration between the Maxwell Centre and the Cambridge Network.
