Paper Abstract

Research in organic solid and polymer-based optoelectronic devices is driven by the physical flexibility, low cost, processability, and almost infinite spectrum of functional possibilities offered by organic materials. Many active components currently used in fiber-optic communication system reply on the use of inorganic semiconductors and mechanical means, which makes each of the components bulky, rigid and independent. Photonic on-chip integration is extremely difficult with current components and materials. Thus, there is a need for a new and emerging class of organic materials for use in a range of important optoelectronic components, which enables improvement and revolution in device performance, device miniaturization and on-chip integration.
