Public lecture to explore organic electronics

Organic electronics is generating interest not only in the science community but in the business world as well. Its current market of about one billion dollars is expected to grow to $45 billion by 2016.

In a free presentation entitled “Organic Electronics: From Serendipitous Discovery to Market,” Holger Eichhorn will provide some of the facts behind the buzz.

The public is invited to join the discussion on Wednesday, May 15, for a journey from the early beginnings of organic electronics to today’s and tomorrow’s printable, flexible, and stretchable organic electronic devices. The free public session starts at 7:30 p.m. at Canada South Science City, 930 Marion Avenue.

Dr. Eichhorn is an associate professor of chemistry at the University of Windsor. His research group studies self-assembling organic and nanostructured materials with applications to chemical sensors, drug delivery, and advanced electronic devices.

The event is part of the Science Café series, which offers discussion of important science research for the general public.
