Since the discovery of conducting polymers more than forty years ago, organic electronic materials are making their way to everyday\'s life, promising tunable, cheap and flexible materials for displays, lighting, solar panels and microchips. To improve the performance in these devices, several processes have to be optimized, i.e optical absorption, exciton diffusion, charge generation, recombination and transport. These processes are governed by the electronic nature of the film-constituting molecules as well as by their mutual arrangement, which in turn is controlled by the intra-molecular geometrical and electronic properties. A full understanding of these processes to exploit the richness of organic synthesis thus demands intense collaboration of material science, theory, spectroscopy, device physics and engineering.
To reflect the latest developments in the field, we feature a special issue on "Organic Electronic Materials", covering different aspects like synthesis, characterization, processes and devices.
Johannes Gierschner, Ph. D.
All papers should be submitted to email@example.com. To be published continuously until the deadline and papers will be listed together at the special website.
Submitted papers should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed quarterly journal published by MDPI. Review manuscripts: Before writing their manuscripts, potential authors of review articles should forward the title and a short abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then provide feedback on the suitability of the topic.
Open Access publication fees are 300 CHF per paper. English correction fees and/or formatting fees (250 CHF) will be added in certain cases (550 CHF per paper for those papers that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections).
Starting 1 January 2010, Article Processing Charges are of 800 CHF per accepted article for Materials
