Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Electronics is intended to publish peer reviewed scholarly research work on Organic Materials and Organic Sensors that can be applied in Biomedical Applications.

Recent research developments show that organic polymer material (conducting polymer and organic semiconductor) properties are competent to those of conventional inorganic semiconductors and possess virtues such as flexibility, are easy and cheap to synthesize, and are green processing. A number of materials have already been implemented in commercial electronic devices, especially in displays and sensors. Many organic materials exhibit good biocompatibility and interact with biological samples, and, hence, are excellent candidates for numerous biological and medical applications, such as electrochemical biosensors, sensing ‘skins’, thermal sensors, electrically functionalizable disposable sensors, flexible wet sensors, and can also transmit power and data wirelessly.

This special volume, entitled “Organic Materials and Sensors for Biomedical Applications”, invites papers highlighting reviews and original research work in the following areas:

  • Organic Materials suitable for Biomedical Applications
  • Organic Semiconductors and Biosensors
  • Organic Biomedical Electronics/Devices

Organic light emitting diodes (OLED) are promising candidates offering in optical sensor applications to detect different gas compositions and excitable optical marker groups in chemical and biological processes. They enable attractive solutions for monitoring the gas phase composition of e.g., dissolved molecular oxygen (O2) species in bio reactors or excitation of fluorescent markers. In this work, we investigate different OLED devices for biomedical applications to excite the fluorescent dye rhodamine 6G (R6G). The OLED devices are built in top emission geometry comprising a distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) acting as optical mirror. The OLED is optimized to provide a very narrow emission characteristic to excite the R6G at 530 nm wavelength and enabling the possibility to minimize the optical crosstalk between the OLED electroluminescence and the fluorescence of R6G. The DBR includes a thin film encapsulation and enables the narrowing of the spectral emission band depending on the number of DBR pairs. The comparison between optical simulation data and experimental results exhibits good agreement and proves process stability. Full article
