Microelectronics Group



Professor Henning Sirringhaus holds the Hitachi Professorship of Electron Device Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory. He has been working in the field of charge transport in organic semiconductors and their application in field-effect transistors since 1997. He has an undergraduate and PhD degree in physics from ETH Z├╝rich (CH). From 1995-1996 he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Princeton University (USA). He was awarded the Mullard award of the Royal Society in 2003. His scientific interests include the charge transport physics of molecular, and polymeric semiconductors, the development of printing-based nanopatterning techniques, the use of scanning probe techniques for electrical characterization of functional nanostructures, and the development of novel approaches to quantum computation.

He is a member of the Optoelectronics Group, and also current head of the Microelectronics Research Centre of the Cavendish Laboratory.

He is co-founder and Chief Scientist of Plastic Logic Ltd., a technology start-up company commercialising printed organic transistor technology.
