Organic Light Emitting Devices: Synthesis, Properties and Applications / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
As a result, all the four important aspects of OLEDs are covered:
- syntheses of the organic materials
- physical theory of electroluminescence and device efficiency
- device conception and construction
- characterization of both materials and devices.
The whole is naturally rounded off with a look at what the future holds in store.
The editor, Klaus Muellen, is director of the highly prestigious MPI for polymer research in Mainz, Germany, while the authors include Nobel Laureate Alan Heeger, one of the most notable founders of the field, Richard Friend, as well as Ching Tang, Eastman Kodak's number-one OLED researcher, known throughout the entire community for his key publications.

About the Author
Prof. Dr. Ullrich Scherf studied chemistry at Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, Germany, obtaining his Ph.D. in 1988 on the synthesis of PPV-type organic semiconductors and carbonization of polymer films. He subsequently spent one year at the Institute for Animal Physiology of the Saxonian Academy of Sciences in Leipzig isolating and characterizing of cockroach hormones. He joined the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz, in 1990 and completed his habilitation in 1996 on polyarylene-type ladder polymers. He followed a call to the University of Potsdam, Germany, onto a professorship for polymer chemistry. In 2002, he became full professor for Macromolecular Chemistry at Bergische Universit?t Wuppertal, Germany. He has published over 350 refereed papers and received the Meyer-Struckmann Research Award in 1998.
