Organic Electronics is a novel field of electronics that has gained an incredible attention over the past few decades. New materials, device architectures and applications have been continuously introduced by the academic and also industrial communities, and novel topics have raised strong interest in such communities, as molecular doping, thermoelectrics, bioelectronics and many others.

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.

Key Features

  • 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.


This book provides an ideal reference for academic researchers in the Materials Science, Engineering and Physics disciplines, but is also useful to researchers working in industry R&D.
