Description

Providing complementary viewpoints from academia as well as technology companies, this book covers the three most important aspects of successful device design: materials, device physics, and manufacturing technologies. It also offers an insight into commercialization concerns, such as packaging technologies, system integration, reel-to-reel large scale manufacturing issues and production costs. With an introduction by Nobel Laureate Alan Heeger.

"This book has a very good technical depth and, as such, will be worthwhile for researchers either entering the field of organic photovoltaics or for those already involved with organic photovoltair cell technology. Both will find this book to be an excellent resource of well-illustrated, clearly explained results from previous researchers." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, March/April 2009)
