The OSC brings together physicists and chemists at the University of St
Andrews to undertake collaborative research on remarkable plastic-like
materials that can conduct electricity and emit light. Organic materials are an
important new class of semiconductors as they combine the virtues of plastics,
which can be easily shaped, with those of semiconductors which are the basis of
all microelectronics. These novel materials can be used to make lightweight
flexible optoelectronic devices such as displays, solar cells and lasers.
Established in 2001, the OSC is an interdisciplinary research centre with the
principal aim of advancing organic semiconductors towards applications in the
semiconductor, electronics and optoelectronics industries.
