Speaker Information

John F. Wager
Professor, Michael and Judith Gaulke Chair
School of EECS
Oregon State University


Amorphous oxide semiconductor thin-film transistors are transitioning towards commercialization for active-matrix liquid crystal display applications. They also appear well-positioned to meet the more demanding challenges associated with active-matrix organic light-emitting device. The objective of this talk is to review the origins and current status of AOS TFTs for display applications.

This talk will be presented as a Keynote Address at the upcoming SID Display Week 2013 International Convention, Vancouver, CA, May 21, 2013.

Speaker Bio

John F. Wager holds the Michael and Judith Gaulke Endowed Chair in the School of EECS at Oregon State University. He is lead author of a book entitled “Transparent Electronics.” Transparent electronics technology developed in his group at OSU was licensed to Hewlett-Packard Company who has continued advanced joint-development with his group. This technology is finding emerging, high-value applications in flat-panel display thin-film transistor backplanes. His current research interests include transparent electronics, oxide electronics, metal-insulator tunneling electronics, thin-film photovoltaics, and nanolaminated metamaterials.
