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.
