This is an extensive volume of more than 500 pages about the growing area of organic optoelectronics. The findings and industrial applications from this topic can be seen in our everyday lives. The display of your iPhone, high-definition TVs, solar cells, and many other sensors are all based on organic optoelectronic devices. The first four chapters deal with organic and molecular transistors. The following sections describe devices based on organic materials for optoelectronic applications, such as LEDs, solar cells and thermoelectric devices. Each chapter is written by topical experts and includes a list of references. There is also a comprehensive index at the end of the book. This text will be very helpful for anyone interested in optoelectronics.
