Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.
