To date the use of organic thin film transistors and circuits in industrial products has been limited. The main obstacle for substantial market penetration of such organic electronic components has been the inability to achieve sufficient device performance using high-volume production methods such as printing. In response to this, European Union funded POLARIC project aims to revolutionise the way printed electronic circuits are made and simultaneously, take a major step forward in the device performance. As a result, high-performance organic electronic circuits will be realised using large-area fabrication methods. The organic transistor fabrication development will be focused to enable a high resolution step, which will be compatible with roll-to-roll printing. This high resolution step will enable smaller transistor channel length (below 1 µm) and thereby an increase in the performance of the device. The main demonstrators will be printed active matrix liquid crystal display and radio-frequency identification tag. The presentation covers the overview of activities and latest research results in the way towards printable, organic and large-area realisation of integrated circuits.
