Henning Sirringhaus holds the Hitachi Professorship of Electron Device Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. He has an undergraduate and PhD degree in physics from ETH Zürich (CH). From 1995-1996 he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Princeton University (USA). He has been working in Cambridge in the field of charge transport in organic semiconductors and their application in field-effect transistors since 1997. In 2000, he co-founded Plastic Logic Ltd., a technology start-up company commercialising printed organic transistor technology.
His research interests include charge transport through self-assembled organic molecules and polymer and high-resolution printing based fabrication of organic devices and applications of organic semiconductors in field-effect transistors and solar cells.
