The objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive overview of the physics of plastic electronic devices. After taking this course, the student should be able to demonstrate theoretical knowledge on the following subjects:
Concept of organic semiconductors;
Charge carrier transport in polymeric and organic semiconductors;
Optical properties of organic semiconductors;
Charge injection from metals to organic solids;
Operating mode of the main plastic electronic devices: Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), organic photovoltaic cells (OPVs) and organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).
