Electronic Processes in Organic Semiconductors
1. Edition April 2015
XIV, 406 Pages, Softcover
The first advanced textbook to focus on the fundamentals in a brief, coherent and comprehensive way. Based on one of the author's proven lecture course, it prepares students to understand the many multi-authored books available that discuss a particular aspect in more detail.
The first advanced textbook to provide a useful introduction in a brief, coherent and comprehensive way, with a focus on the fundamentals. After having read this book, students will be prepared to understand any of the many multi-authored books available in this field that discuss a particular aspect in more detail, and should also benefit from any of the textbooks in photochemistry or spectroscopy that concentrate on a particular mechanism.
Based on a successful and well-proven lecture course given by one of the authors for many years, the book is clearly structured into four sections: electronic structure of organic semiconductors, charged and excited states in organic semiconductors, electronic and optical properties of organic semiconductors, and fundamentals of organic semiconductor devices.
Charges and excited states in organic semiconductors
Electronic and optical processes in organic semiconductors
Fundamentals of organic semiconductor devices
APPENDIX: Chemical Structures
A1 - Selected Polymers
A2 - Selected pi-conjugated low-molecular weight compounds
A3 - Selected phosphorescent compounds
A4 - non-conjugated low-molecular weight compounds
Heinz Baessler is retired Professor at the Bayreuth Institute of Macromolecular Research (BIMF) at the University of Bayreuth. From 1970 to 2002 he worked as Professor in the Department of Physical Chemistry at the Philipps University in Marburg in Germany, having obtained his PhD degree in Physics from the Technical University in Munich, Germany, in 1963. His research interest concerns the optoelectronics of organic solids with particular emphasis on charge transport and on the spectroscopy of conjugated polymers. He is widely recognized for his studies on the effects of disorder in organic semiconductors.
