Gerwin Gelinck

Full Professor


Prof. Dr. G.H. Gelinck studied at the University of Nijmegen and obtained his PhD from the Technical University of Delft on (photo)physics of electrical functional polymers in 1998. In the same year Gerwin joined Philips Research to work on material and device aspects of organic thin-film transistors, with an emphasis on potential applications such as RF tags and AM displays. He was co-founder and Chief Scientist of Polymer Vision from 2002-2006. Since January 2007 Gerwin is program manager at the Holst Centre, leading an international team of ~20 researchers that work on flexible, large-area electronics. He is appointed as part-time professor at the University of Eindhoven in the Applied Physics Department per Sept 1st 2014. Since 2015, he is Program Director and Principal Scientist (‘Research Fellow’) of TNO. His research interests include novel solution processed semiconductors, fundamental charge and energy transport in these disordered materials in thin-film transistors and photodiodes, and applications based on these materials/devices.
