The major goal of "Molecular and Organic Electronics: Bridging the Gaps" is defined by the title: bringing together scientists working in molecular and organic electronics and bridging the gaps between the two fields. Key concepts that have been developed/tested in only one field should be presented by leading experts and critical discussions should allow concluding on the applicability of these concepts to both fields in the future.
The seminar participants, including those at an early stage of their scientific carrier, should experience a merging of concepts in molecular and organic electronics. This will establish increased inter-disciplinary communication and thus ensure a sustained future development of a fascinating field of science and technology.
Present gaps that should be closed during the seminar are:
• molecular vs. organic electronics
• behavior of single molecules vs. assemblies of molecules
• experiments in UHV vs. air vs. liquids
• ideal theory vs. real-world experiment
