Description

This textbook provides a basic understanding of the principles of the field of organic electronics through to their applications in organic devices. Useful for the student and practitioner, it is both a teaching text and a resource that is a jumping-off point for learning, working and innovating in this rapidly growing field.

  • Divided into two sections: fundamental principles of the field, and organic electronic devices
  • Moves the reader rapidly through basic understanding, theoretical underpinning, to practical examples
  • End-of-chapter exercises to embed understanding and solidify knowledge
  • Key chapters on optical properties, organic light emitters and detectors advances in the field and the source materials
  • Comprehensive coverage of this broad field makes this textbook a self-contained, convenient reference
  • Useful for both the student and the practitioner in the field of organic electronics

Reviews

"The definitive organic electronics textbook for many years to come ... this book has everything: It is a comprehensive and accessible exposition of its topic, organic electronics; it is beautifully illustrated; it contains copious references to the literature and includes instructive exercises. The book has the advantage of having been written by a highly accomplished researcher who has also road-tested teaching this material on many occasions." - K. Alan Shore, Optics & Photonics News, March 2021
