Special Issue "Conjugated Polymers"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 January 2014)
Conjugated polymers are a versatile class of organic functional materials which have attracted much interest for their optical and electronic properties, and their wide range of potential applications in organic electronic devices such as transistors, LEDs, solar cells, photodetectors, lasers, or sensors. Already many types of prototype devices have been made and some are now commercially available. In this issue we aim to present a range of articles on conjugated polymers as materials, with topics ranging from their synthesis and characterization through to their use in devices.
