About that time of Nobel Prize 2000 in Chemistry for the discovery and development of conductive polymers, a group of organics called as organic semiconductors began to attract a great deal of attention for the electronic materials. Past three decades, organic electronic materials, namely “Organic Photoconductors, OPCs, achieved a great success as electrophotographic photoreceptors of copying machines and laser beam printers after many years' efforts. The deep understandings on the charge generation and transport as well as charge injection at the interface of organic layers in organic photoreceptors established the fundamentals of electronic processes in a wide range of organic materials, which are consisted of inherently insulating molecular assembly. Recently, on a flag of “Organic Electronics”, these materials are thrown into many electronic devices such as organic electroluminescent EL devices, and more recently, organic FET transistors, organic memories, and solid state organic solar cells. Especially, great efforts have been devoted to achieve paper-like displays or electronic papers, exploiting their advantages for large area, flexible devices.

In this talk, the historical progresses of OPCs in past 30 years will be reviewed briefly and let us consider what we are now aiming at with organic electronic materials, which are generally said to be inferior to inorganic silicon semiconductors in their electrical properties, and find a scenario to an advanced imaging world drawn with organic electronics. If the time permits, our recently developed novel opto-electronic device combining an organic EL diode and organic photo-electrical conversion layer will be introduced.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
