The Brédas Research Group
Welcome to the Brédas Group
Using theoretical/computational methods we seek to aide in the understanding and design of novel materials for organic electronics and photonics. Please see the research page for detailed descriptions of current projects in the group.
7th Annual Solvay-COPE Symposium on Organic Electronics
The 7th Annual Solvay~COPE Symposium on Organic Electronics is slated to take place on May 15-16, 2013 in Bordeaux, France at the Université de Bordeaux. Previous events have been held in Pittsburgh (hosted by Plextronics), Atlanta (hosted by Georgia Tech), Leuven, Belgium (hosted by IMEC), and Beijing, China (hosted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences).
This year's symposium will gather around 150 people from the academic world and from companies active in the field of OLEDs, printed transistors, and OPV.
Georgia Tech-COPE Industry Partners' Day
On April 23, 2013, the Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics at Georgia Tech will host an Industry Partners' Day. The day will include partner presentations, a networking lunch, student and researcher poster session, and lab tours.
Georgia Tech-COPE Distinguished Lecture Series: Yasuhiro Koike - Wed. March 13, 4:00pm, ES&T L1255
The Georgia Tech-COPE Distinguished Lecture Series is pleased to welcome Dr. Yasuhiro Koike from Keio University on Wednesday, March 13 at 4pm in Lecture Room L1225 of the Environmental Science and Technology Building (ES&T). (Please note that this is not the usual auditorium in which many preceding Distinguished Lectures took place).
Dr. Koike is Professor in the Faculty of Science and Technology of Keio University (located in the Minato ward of Tokyo) and Director of the Keio Photonics Research Institute. He received his Ph.D. in Engineering from the Graduate School of Engineering, Keio University, Yokohama, Japan. He served as a visiting research staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories from 1989 to 1990. Dr. Koike has been Professor at Keio University since 1997. He specializes in photonics polymers, in particular, high-bandwidth graded-index polymer optical fibers (GI POF), highly scattered optical transmission (HSOT) polymers, and zero birefringence polymers.
