Organic solids exhibit a broad range of interesting electrical, optical, and related properties. This class of materials consists of small molecules, polymers, and their corresponding blends that may form amorphous glasses, liquid crystals, or crystals acting as insulators, semiconductors, conductors, or superconductors. Therefore, organic solids may be applied in a great variety of devices, such as light-emitting diodes, field-effect transistors, solar cells, sensors, capacitors, and many others. Since the discovery of conducting organic materials, this research field has progressed remarkably, becoming a wide interdisciplinary area that merges chemical, physical, biological, and technical sciences. For this reason, this Special Issue, covering fundamentals as well as applications, welcomes submissions on any aspect of the electrical and optical properties of organic materials, such as
- Photophysics and charge transport
- Organic light-emitting diodes and lasers
- Organic and perovskite photovoltaics
- Transistors and molecular electronics
- Organic bioelectronics, biophotonics, and sensors
- Organic nonlinear optics and nanophotonics
- Conducting and semiconducting organic and carbon materials, like electronic polymers, molecular materials, and novel carbon architectures.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
