Established in 2003, The Georgia Tech Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics (COPE) is a premier national research and educational resource center that creates flexible organic photonic and electronic materials and devices that serve the information technology, telecommunications, energy, and defense sectors.
COPE creates the opportunity for disruptive technologies by developing new materials with emergent properties and by providing new paradigms for device design and fabrication.
This helps enable a new generation of devices and systems that meet the challenges that these sectors and our ever-changing society face in this decade and the future.
COPE works closely with many of the research centers and institutes at Georgia Tech to provide a focal point for campus-wide efforts on functional organic optical and electronic materials. To foster the spirit of inclusiveness and cooperation that typifies Georgia Tech, COPE avoids a narrow definition of its mission.
