Printed, flexible electronics have potential as low cost alternatives for devices in industries ranging from energy to health care to security.  Device performance depends critically on semiconductor alignment at the nano- through macro-scales.  Requisite long-range order can be achieved through process optimization which utilizes knowledge associated with materials structure-process-property relationships. Fundamental insights may allow for simple, controllable, and cost-effective methodologies for high performance in plastic electronic and photovoltaic devices.
