Bio

PAUL HEREMANS - TECHNOLOGY DIRECTOR, HOLST CENTRE / FELLOW, IMEC

Paul L. Heremans received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Leuven, Belgium, in 1990. From 1984 to 1990, he was a research assistant and senior research assistant at the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research (NFWO) working on hot-carrier degradation mechanisms in CMOS. In 1990, he joined the opto-electronics group of imec. He worked on optical interchip interconnects, and on high-efficiency III-V thin-film surface-textured light-emitting diodes. In 1998, he started the organic semiconductor activities at imec. The main focus today is oxide and organic electronics, including circuits, backplanes and memories, as well as organic photovoltaics. Paul Heremans is currently imec fellow and professor at the Electrical Engineering Department of the University of Leuven. He is also director of the large area electronics department at imec, and manages the research program on “Organic and Oxide Transistors” of HOLST Centre, a collaborative research initiative by imec and TNO.

Presentation abstract

RESOLUTION AND POWER SCALING SOLUTIONS FOR FUTURE FLEXIBLE ELECTRONICS AND DISPLAYS

Lowering the power consumption and increasing the resolution are two critical evolutions for mobile displays, that will accelerate as handheld mobile devices are complemented by augmented reality smart glasses. In this presentation, we will discuss materials, technologies and design developments that enable this scaling. These evolutions will lead to increasing performance of thin-film circuits on plastic. We will show some concrete examples of electronics in paper possible with today’s technologies, and project to future use cases.
