At the Laboratory of Organic Electronics (LOE), we explore electronic and optical properties of organic materials and organic-inorganic hybrid systems. We are particularly interested in using the coupling between electronic and ionic charges to develop novel device and system concepts for applications in energy, internet-of-things, healthcare, and biology. We conduct our research and technology projects within the Täppan Clean Room and the Printed Electronics Arena at Campus Norrköping. Our research themes span synthesis, material science, theory and modeling, devices, systems, and applications. Projects closer to end-user applications and commercialization are conducted in close collaboration with ACREO Swedish ICT. LOE includes approximately 60 scientists and students divided into several subgroups, each guided by a principal investigator:
- Device physics (Xavier Crispin)
- Organic Bioelectronics (Daniel Simon)
- Organic Photonics (Magnus Jonsson)
- Organic Nanoelectronics (Simone Fabiano)
- Organic Chemistry (Roger Gabrielsson)
- Printed electronics (Isak Engquist)
- Theory and modeling (Igor Zozoulenko)
