Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Now, organic electronic devices are, not only devices in laboratories, but are also commercialized devices and upcoming devices in market (new products). The main advantages of organic electronic devices are that they are thin, light weight, and flexible. Still, there are concerns regarding the durability and reliability. However, some of them are better than before due to the development of materials and well-reported fabrication protocols.

In this Special Issue, we focus on the integration or convergence of organic electronic devices for new applications, such as biomedical devices, health care, environmental monitoring sensors, self-powered IoT (Internet of Things) devices, and new portable electronic devices. The concept of high-performance organic electronic devices and research tools/platforms based on organic electronic devices will be welcome. We also discuss new equipment and fabrication methods for organic electronic devices. Review and original research papers are welcome.

Hole-transporter-free perovskite solar cells carrying a carbon back contact electrode provide the possibility of making full printable low cost and stable devices, even though their efficiency is substantially lower than those made in the standard configuration. The present work searched for simple and easy routes for constructing such devices, demonstrating that organic components do enhance device efficiency but only to a level that is not worth the trouble nor the cost. Devices based on a triple mesoporous layer of titania/zirconia/carbon with perovskite infiltration gave an efficiency of 10.7%. After 180 days of storing under ambient conditions, a small loss of efficiency has been observed for a cell made in June, in spite of the fact that in going from June to December, a large increase of the ambient humidity took place, thus verifying the protective effect that the carbon electrode is providing. The addition of spiro-OMeTAD to the hole-transporter-free device resulted in increasing the efficiency by about 10%, a change which is appreciated to be of low importance given the cost of this material. This increase mainly derived from an increase in the current. Devices of different sizes have been constructed by screen printing, using home-made pastes for all the components making the cell scaffold, i.e., for titania, zirconia, and carbon layers.
