Organic solar cells increasingly demonstrate their potential as viable alternatives to pure inorganic solar cells, with continuous advances accomplished in performance and lifetime. The community now considers both aspects as equally important for the development of the field and are currently sources of important research. Moreover, with the nearing prospect of applications, technological aspects are becoming important and the development of processing techniques must also be considered as a key factor for success. This special issue of Materials aims to bring together developments in materials, process and device architecture as intimately correlated factors for improved performance devices. Materials include polymers, small molecules, organic-inorganic
hybrids, interfacial materials, semiconductors and conductors.
Fundamental and applied works including deposition techniques, stability of materials and devices, are of interest for this issue.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
