The field of organic light-emitting materials and devices is rapidly evolving and is taking over the entire field of lighting display devices. This large, tightly written book discusses the physics and chemistry of light-emitting materials, as well as the technology and engineering of the devices they are used in. The chapters on materials chemistry are especially good. There are also historical sketches to introduce each chapter.
This up-to-date and authoritative survey of a rapidly changing field is timely and welcome. However, reading the book was somewhat tedious because of the excessive use of acronyms. There are more than 100 acronyms in the text, and there is no convenient glossary for them.
