Organic electronics research within the MRI is primarily focused around the dedicated organic electronics clean room facilities. Usage of these facilities is focused on spin injection in organic systems and muon spectroscopy. This has enabled us to become one of the world leaders in organic spintronics and spin-interactions in organic electronics and establish a joint Research Institute at Sichuan University. We are also active in large-area transparent-conducting electronics. Future development will include organic photonics based on recent work on organic optical amplifiers.
