Speaker Biography (Bernard Kippelen)
Bernard Kippelen was born and raised in Alsace, France. He studied at the University Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg where he received a Maitrise in Solid-State Physics in 1985, and a Ph.D. in Nonlinear Optics in 1990. From 1990 to 1997 he was Chargé de Recherches at the CNRS, France. In 1994, he joined the faculty of the Optical Sciences Center at the University of Arizona. There, he developed a research and teaching program on polymer optics and plastic electronics. He holds six patents and has co-authored over 100 referenced publications and nine book chapters. His publications have received over 1,400 citations. He served as chair and co-chair of numerous international conferences on organic optoelectronic materials and devices. He is the co-founder of several spin-off companies, including NP Photonics, Inc. and LumoFlex, LLC. Since August 2003, he is a professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology where his research ranges from the investigation of fundamental physical processes (nonlinear optical activity, charge transport, light harvesting and emission), to the design, fabrication and testing of light-weight flexible optoelectronic devices based on nanostructured organic materials. He serves as the Associate Director of the Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics.
