Organic solar cells are an important family of third generation photovoltaic technology and have stimulated extensive interest in the solar cell research community. Organic solar cells typically contain a mixture of an electron donor and an electron acceptor; either one or both of them are organic semiconductors (molecular or polymeric materials). These solar cells are light-weight, inexpensive, and compatible with large-scale roll-to-roll fabrication. Fueled by multidisciplinary research efforts, the past five years have seen a rapid advancement in their performance.
This Special Issue on “Organic Solar Cells” will discuss state-of-the-art topics concerning organic solar cells (e.g., the design and synthesis of organic semiconductors, material characterization, device photophysics and characterization, the design and fabrication of novel device architectures, etc.). The Special Issue will be of great interest to the organic solar cell research community. Your contribution to the issue will be greatly appreciated.Prof. Dr. Robert P. H. Chang

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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
