    Printed rectifying diodes, while not as heavily studied as printed TFTs, play an important role in electronic circuitry, e.g. in RF rectification or as an alternative display back plane structure. Printed organic diodes place less severe demands on charge carrier mobility or lateral resolution than conventional organic TFTs, but bring their own challenges. In this talk work done in our group on gravure printed Schottky diodes will be presented, with discussion of how the printing process can affect interfaces and device physics. The integration of printed Schottky diodes into circuits such as rectifiers, charge pumps and display backplanes is then demonstrated.
