The purpose of this symposium is to determine the features required for next-generation flexible devices by discussing the expressions of functions of artificial molecular materials placed under different external fields considering their future application to practical electronic devices.
Organic molecular materials have not only various functions, such as electric conductivity, magnetism, and dielectric and optical properties, but also flexibility, malleability, and adiabaticity. The molecular systems in living organisms incorporate these features in a sophisticated way. For example, photosystem II (PSII) functions as a composite electronic device that can smoothly perform optical energy collection, unidirectional energy transfer, charge separation, charge accumulation, electrochemical redox, and electron transfer depending on the external conditions such as the solar light intensity and temperature. Beyond material synthesis, understanding the behavior of elastic materials at various length scales under both internal and external stresses may enable broader discussion, leading to new processes and applications of these materials.
Cross-disciplinary discussions bridging chemistry, physics, materials science, medical science, electronics, and engineering will be performed for next-generations flexible electronics.
