The center acts as a central point for education and research of new technologies based on organic photonic and electronic materials.
What is Organic Photonics and Electronics?
Historically, electronics relied on inorganic materials like copper or silicone.
Today, a new generation of technologies is founded on carbon-based materials like the molecules of living things.
These organic materials have distinct advantages over inorganic semi-conductors:
- Low-cost production
- Mechanical flexibility
- Environmental compatibility
Our goal is to educate a new generate of productive scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and educators.
Through our course listings, research opportunities, trainings and events, we are a resource for anyone in the Georgia Tech or Atlanta communities who is interested in organic photonics and electronics.
Georgia Tech is shaping the field of organic photonics and electronics that serve the information technology, energy, telecommunications, and defense sectors.
The center provides a focal point for all campus-wide efforts on functional organic optical and electronic materials. COPE Research
