Date21 September 2011
DescriptionCertificate of Election
CitationBurroughes made the seminal advances in the science and engineering of semiconducting polymers that have brought these materials from research to the marketplace. His early papers from Cambridge on polymer FETs (1988) and LEDs (1990) defined the scope of the field. In his role as Chief Technology Officer at Cambridge Display Technology he has transformed early demonstration into fully manufacturable technology, using new device architectures, new materials and new manufacturing processes such as direct printing of full colour LED displays. This engineering programme has generated fundamental understanding of the underlying device physics.
