    Organic and organic/inorganic optoelectronic thin-film devices: challenges and opportunities

    In the past decade, significant progress has been made in the fabrication of organic and inorganic/organic hybrid optoelectronic thin-film devices, such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs), field-effect transistors (FETs) or photovoltaics PVs). This has predominantly been due to important improvements of existing materials and the creation of a wealth of novel compounds. Many challenges, however, still exist. In the field of photovoltaic cells, real understanding of what structural and electronic features determine, for instance, the short-circuit current (Jsc), open-circuit voltage (Voc) and fill factor are still lacking; and the role of charge transfer states and which charge transfer states are critical for efficient charge generation have been strongly debated. In the field-effect transistor area, interfacial phenomena dictate charge injection, charge transport and beyond; gaining therefore further insights in this process will provide further step changes towards technological and practical application. A similar view applies to light-emitting diodes. Here, we will discuss a variety of devices in the context of interface phenomena and exemplify our approaches on well-defined model systems that permitted us to correlate insights into processes and interfacial structure with device performance, from processes within the active layers to interfacial processes that assist light-out-coupling/-in-coupling and beyond.
