RESEARCH AREA

Flexible and printed electronics are important for a broad range of applications – foldable and rollable displays come to mind, but also curved medical X-ray detectors and ultrasound imagers, electronic skin patches and, more recently, lab/organ-on-a-chip and (retinal) implants. My expertise in this field is the result of a career-long interest, from my PhD in electrical functional polymers through organic thin-film transistor research at Philips Research to several positions at the Holst Centre. My mandate as professor at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is to explore future and emerging applications of these interesting electronics.

As CTO of Holst Centre/TNO, I focus not only on R&D innovation management but also on portfolio management and business, consortium and talent development. My research interests include novel solution-processed semiconductors, fundamental charge and energy transport in these disordered materials in thin-film transistors, photodiodes, actuators and sensors, and applications based on these materials/devices. In this context, my research contributes to the TNO roadmap “Flexible & Free-form Products”.

RECENT RESULTS

A better understanding of flexible and printed electronics – their potential and limitations – is key to delivering next-generation mobile and wearable devices. Some highlights:
