Organic Flexible Electronics is mainly divided into three sections. The first part is focused on the fundamentals of organic electronics, such as charge transport models in these systems and new approaches for the design and synthesis of novel molecules. The first section addresses the main challenges that are still open in this field, including the important role of interfaces for achieving high-performing devices or the novel approaches employed for improving reliability issues.
The second part discusses the most innovative devices which have been developed in recent years, such as devices for energy harvesting, flexible batteries, high frequency circuits, and flexible devices for tattoo electronics and bioelectronics.
Finally the book reviews the most important applications moving from more standard flexible back panels to wearable and textile electronics and more futuristic applications like ingestible systems.
- Reviews the fundamental properties and methods for optimizing organic electronic materials including chemical doping and techniques to address stability issues;
- Discusses the most promising organic electronic devices for energy, electronics, and biomedical applications;
- Addresses key applications of organic electronic devices in imagers, wearable electronics, bioelectronics.
