Special issue on Polymer Electronics

by | Jun 25, 2012

The latest guest-edited issue of Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Physics takes an in-depth look at solar cells, transistors and characterization, with reviews free to download.

The latest issue of the Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Physics is a guest-edited special issue on polymer electronics. Guest editors Thomas Russell and Dhandapani Venkataraman, from UMass Amherst, have pulled together leading experts in the field to provide Reviews of current research in solar cells, transistors and materials characterization.

“The energy crisis, global warming and a need for renewable energy sources have given rise to a massive interest in the research community to address these issues,” the guest editors explain. “While polymer-based devices will certainly not be the end-all solution to these problems, they will have their place, taking advantage of the flexibility, processability and low cost of polymeric materials.”
