Organic electronics are beginning to make significant inroads into the commercial world, and if the field continues to progress at its current, rapid pace, electronics based on organic thin-film materials will soon become a mainstay of our technological existence. Already products based on active thin-film organic devices are in the market place, most(More)
Organic devices promise to revolutionize the extent of, and access to, electronics by providing extremely inexpensive, lightweight and capable ubiquitous components that are printed onto plastic, glass or metal foils. One key component of an electronic circuit that has thus far received surprisingly little attention is an organic electronic memory. Here we(More)
Optical tracking is often combined with conventional flat panel solar cells to maximize electrical power generation over the course of a day. However, conventional trackers are complex and often require costly and cumbersome structural components to support system weight. Here we use kirigami (the art of paper cutting) to realize novel solar cells where(More)

Metal-free organic phosphorescent materials are attractive alternatives to the predominantly used organometallic phosphors but are generally dimmer and are relatively rare, as, without heavy-metal atoms, spin-orbit coupling is less efficient and phosphorescence usually cannot compete with radiationless relaxation processes. Here we present a general design(More)
When asked in a recent London Science Museum survey BWhat could you not live without?,[ a surprisingly large fraction of the people responded the BInternet,[ being beaten out only by Bsunshine.[ Yet, the society-and industry-transforming Internet as we know it could not exist without the dramatic advances in optics and photonics that have occurred over the(More)
