  • Description:

    Plastics are supposed to be a major source of pollution. But many plastics are electronic materials as well. In this lecture, we will explore the possibility that plastic electronics can be used to make very efficient white light, and even harvest energy from the sun, perhaps giving us hope that these materials can lead us to a cleaner and less expensive energy future.
