About this Research Topic
Organic optoelectronic materials have been widely used in organic light-emitting diodes, organic field-effect transistors, organic solar cells, and organic storage because of their excellent photoelectric properties and economic and environmental values. Novel technologies and progress in synthesizing new active layer materials, optimizing their morphology, exploring device mechanisms in depth, designing new device structures, and optimizing the interface for large areas utility will improve their performance and encourage further applications. Furthermore, the establishment and development of theoretical modeling in organic photoelectric materials will provide deep insight into the micromechanism behind the experiments, and based on the correlation between structure and properties researchers could further optimize material properties during the preparation of new materials.
This Research Topic intends to publish Original Research and Review articles in organic optoelectronic materials describing experimental and theoretical results. The Research Topic will not only contain fundamental research and concept in the aspects of synthesis methods, material characterization, morphology, surface and interfacial characteristics, charge and energy transfer and micromechanism, excited state structure and ultrafast dynamic process but also pay attention to the practical applications in organic light-emitting diodes, organic field-effect transistors, organic solar cells, organic storage and all optical switch. Themes of interest include:
• Various concepts of organic optoelectronic materials (organic light-emitting diodes, organic field-effect transistors, organic solar cells)
• Synthesis, characterizations, and applications of organic optoelectronic materials
• Optical, electrical, structural properties of materials
