Light-Active Functional Organic Materials

edited by Hiroko Yamada and Shiki Yagai

The book presents current reviews on a wide range of organic materials having in common their response to or production of light. It focuses on the challenge of making a flexible material with good optoelectronic properties and explores hybrid rigid/flexible systems. It reviews optical microresonators, nanostructure-based organic semiconductors, polymer/fullerene interfaces, near-infrared dyes, and luminescent gold isocyanide complexes, along with LEDs based on thermally activated delayed fluorescence, which promise to approach the efficiency of more expensive inorganic LEDs. Lastly, it discusses the progress with acenes and phenacenes (large aromatic molecules used to develop organic semiconductors). The book authors, who are all active principal investigators in Japan, have presented a well-written text that is generously illustrated throughout.
