A simple polymer-based coating process can reduce the cost and complexity of fabricating organic optoelectronic devices, according to a study published in Science by researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology (DOI: 10.1126/science.1218829). The finding may broaden the use of solar cells, electronic display technologies, and other applications of organic thin films, which offer key advantages over conventional semiconductor-based devices.

Compared with silicon- and other inorganic semiconductor-based electronics, devices constructed from thin films of . . .
