Organic Light-emitting Diodes (OLEDs) are solid-state devices that transform electrical energy into light. OLEDs are considered the next generation technology for high-resolution flexible displays and solid state lighting, attracting intense scientific and industrial interest.
Three-dimensional (3D) printing technology, also called additive manufacturing (AM), has recently come into the spotlight because of its potential high-impact implementation in applications ranging from personal tools to aerospace equipment.
Flexible electronic circuits, displays, and sensors based on organic active materials will enable future generations of electronics products that may eventually enter the mainstream electronics market.
The field of organic nonlinear optics has come a long way since the its triggering development in 1970. In that year, Davydov et al. reported a strong second harmonic generation (SHG) in organic molecules having electron donor and acceptor groups
Professor Shinar (Iowa State University, USA) summarizes the developments of a variety of sensor configurations based on organic and hybrid electronics, as low-cost, disposable, non-invasive, wearable bioelectronics for healthcare.
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) techniques have emerged in the last ten years to meet various needs including semiconductor device miniaturization, conformal deposition on porous structures and coating of nanoparticles. ALD is based on two sequential self-limiting surface reactions.
Review the methods and mechanisms for forming molecular monolayers on silicon surfaces, the properties of these monolayers and perspectives regarding their use in molecular electronic and sensing applications.
While dye sensitization as the basis for color photography has been accepted for a very long time,1 attempts to use this principle for the conversion of solar light to electricity generally had resulted only in very low photocurrents, below 100
The soaring global demand for energy, coupled with the limited supply of fossil fuels, has increased the need for renewable, low-cost energy sources. Organic electronics have shown great promise for applications in lighting, power, and circuitry, with rapidly improving performance
Since the first publication in 1995 describing a bulk heterojunction photodiode incorporating a methanofullerene, significant progress has been made in improving device performance and the scope of device research has broadened widely.
The emerging organic photovoltaic (OPV) technology is very promising for low-cost solar energy production. OPV devices can be produced using high-throughput, large-volume printing methods on lightweight and flexible plastic substrates, making them easy to deploy and use in innovative ways.
