Electronics is the branch of physics and technology that deals with circuits, transistors, microchips, and the behavior and movement of electrons.
Electronics features electric circuits containing active and passive elements and uses underlying techniques. It is an important part of engineering.
Without question, electronics in all its permutations is ingrained into modern society. Electronic devices have become an important part of our day-to-day life. It has become difficult for us to do work without using electronic devices.
We live in a generation that uses electronics and technologies where robots and artificial intelligence are capable of doing human work with more ease and efficiency.
The thing about electronics that tends to mesmerize people attracted to this field is the manner in which electronics continues to evolve.
One of the hottest evolutionary topics in electronics is organic electronics.
Organic electronics is a field of materials science that focuses on the design, synthesis, characterization and application of organic small molecules or polymers that show desirable electronic properties such as conductivity.
While previously limited to research in the fields of chemistry and solid-state physics, organic electronics is now branching out into commercial applications due to its potential for organic-based applications such as flexible displays, electronic papers, sensors, disposable or wearable electronics, medical applications and more.
Organic electronics research has thrived and expanded especially due to its promise to encourage development of products which can complement silicon-based applications with novel functionalities that cannot be addressed by silicon technologies.
Plastic electronics may even replace silicon when this is economically feasible in applications that operate under modest performance requirements (e.g., tens of kHz).
Organic semiconductors promise to impact the industry by reducing complexity processing, compatibility with arbitrary substrates and by great chemical tunability.
