PCCP are pleased to announce the publication of the Organic Field Effect Transistors themed issue. The promise of low cost and flexible transistors has encouraged research groups to explore many avenues and resulted in organic field effect transistors (OFETs) with device efficiencies comparable to amorphous silicon based devices.
This themed issue aims to provide new insights into the underlying physical chemistry of organic field effect transistors (OFETs), providing a better understanding of how and why current devices function.
Such knowledge and understanding will be essential in the quest to further enhance the efficiency of OFETs.
The issue is guest-edited by Zhenan Bao (Stanford University), Antonio Facchetti (Northwestern University), Wenping Hu (Chinese Academy of Sciences), and K. Krishnamoorthy (CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory-Pune).
Below is an example of the high quality work available in the themed collection and if you would like to see more, the full collection can be viewed here.
