Adapting existing manufacturing methods to emerging forms of large-area nanostructured electronics presents major technological and economic challenges. Despite the difficulties, several new processing concepts have gained ground, transforming the broader marketplace and relevant manufacturing infrastructure. In this talk, I will discuss our recent efforts toward scalable manufacturing of emerging forms of large-area nanostructured electronics. I will show how developing innovative patterning technologies with engineered nanomaterials can lead to more sustainable optoelectronics with high-performance characteristics. Particular emphasis will be placed on the development and evolution of adhesion lithography (a-Lith) and self-forming nanogap lithography techniques and their use in an expanding range of applications, from ultra-fast optoelectronics to new chemical reactors and sensors.


Thomas D. Anthopoulos is a Professor of Emerging Optoelectronics at the University of Manchester in the UK. Following the award of his B.Eng. and D.Phil. degrees, he spent two years at the University of St. Andrews (UK), where he worked on organic semiconductors for application in light-emitting diodes before joining Philips Research Laboratories in The Netherlands to focus on printable microelectronics. From 2006 to 2017, he held faculty positions at Imperial College London (UK), first as an EPSRC Advanced Fellow and later as a Reader and Professor of Experimental Physics. From 2017 to 2023, he was a Professor of Material Science at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia. His research interests are diverse and cover the development and application of novel processing paradigms and the physics, chemistry, and application of functional materials.
