Organic Electronics: Materials, Manufacturing, and Applications (3527312641) cover image


Edited and written by the leading researchers and engineers from such companies as Philips, 3M, Xerox, Infineon, PlasticLogic, Eastman Kodak, Dupont, AIXTRON, and Hueck Folien, this book presents unrivalled and undiluted expertise from those who know best how to assess the risks, opportunities and where this technology is really heading.
As such, this practical approach complements the more scientific and fundamentals-oriented literature on the market by providing readers with a first-hand insight into industrial activities to commercialize organic electronics. Following an introduction to the topic, including the history, motivation, benefits and potentials, it reviews recent advances and covers all three important facets of organic electronics: the chemical compounds and materials, manufacturing techniques, and the resulting devices together with their current applications.

"In summary, the authors can be congratulated for having written well-focussed chapters of very high quality, and the editor can be congratulated for the broad yet strategic selection of topics and authors for this book. It is this quality of the individual contributions and the useful selection which make this book not only a good starting lesson on the subject of organic semiconductors, but also a book of reference for the expert in the field." ChemPhysChem

"This book is well structured, and the individual chapters have been written by leading scientists in each area. The editor has coordinated the large amount of information effectively. I really appreciate the good balance between introductory and advanced topics, between scientific and technological /applications issues, and between materials and device structure/applications...this excellent book should be brought to the attention of graduate students as well as industrial and academic researchers interested in organic electronics. It will also provide stimulating ideas for open-minded chemists, physicists, material scientists, and electrical engineers seeking new opportunities in this exciting R & D area. Do not miss it!" Angewandte Chemie und Angewandte I. E.

"...provides a timely overview of the current state of the art in OTFT materials, manufacturing, and applications. This text will make an excellent addition to any library and provides a great introduction point for scientists and engineers looking to familiarize themselves with the field of OTFTs, while also providing a wealth of details for experts seeking a quick reference guide to aid in their own technology development."
