Paper Abstract

Although much of the early developments of organic and polymer-based materials were fueled by the research on space materials, most of the optoelectronic applications for usage in space or terrestrial adverse environments are still dominated by semiconductors. In this paper, we review past and present efforts to incorporate organic-based materials into photonic devices that are suitable for applications in space environments, and discuss what are the main challenges that materials based on organics must meet in order to become fully integrated into photonic devices that can operate in space and space-related environments.
