Electronic and Optical Properties of Conjugated Polymers

William Barford


Since the discovery of the light emitting properties of the phenyl-based organic semiconductors in 1990 there has been a huge growth of interest in conjugated polymers. The potential device applications are enormous, ranging from optical switching to solar cells and light emitting devices. They are also active components in many important biological processes.Progress in our understanding of the fundamental physics of conjugated polymers, which provides a crucial underpinning to the technological applications, has also been large. This progress has been driven by experimental, theoretical and ... More
