Thin film transistors under test

A nanostructured gate dielectric may have addressed the most significant obstacle to expanding the use of organic semiconductors for thin-film transistors. The structure, composed of a fluoropolymer layer followed by a nanolaminate made from two metal oxide materials, serves as gate dielectric and simultaneously protects the organic semiconductor – which had previously been vulnerable to damage from the ambient environment.

Advancing at the Intersection

Important discoveries often take place at the intersection of disciplines. Georgia Tech's research enterprise encourages the kinds of multidisciplinary collaboration that makes these advances possible.

We've broken down the barriers between our schools, colleges and interdisciplinary research organizations to provide federal agencies, companies, and philanthropic organizations the results they need from research investments.

Georgia Tech consistently ranks among the top U.S. universities in the volume of research conducted, and and in 2016, we conducted $791 million in research. But addressing critical research challenges isn’t enough. We’re also moving these solutions out into the world through commercialization and technology transfer, creating an innovation ecosystem to benefit stakeholders ranging from students to startup companies.
