Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Today, there is a significant demand for advanced materials that are capable of providing technological innovations. Among these, "organic semiconductors" combine the progress of semiconductors and plastic of the last century, becoming the subject of intense industrial and academic research. More recently, organic–inorganic hybrid functional materials have became a potential platform for applications in extremely diverse fields, such as optics, micro-electronics, transportation, health, energy and energy storage. This is because it is possible to combine the best characteristics of both components in a large variety of combinations and in this way, they represent an intriguing class of materials with a large spectrum of applications.

This Special Issue will consider the recent developments in the field of organic and hybrid materials in two of the most useful and promising applications of the millennium, photovoltaics and photonics. Multiple aspects of these materials will be taken into consideration, ranging from their synthesis and photophysical characterization to their application.

Potential and topics and keywords:

  • novel organic and hybrid materials;
  • inter-layer materials for photovoltaic devices;
  • sustainable materials, approaches and methods;
  • cw and ultrafast photophysical characterisation;
  • perovskite semiconductors;
  • organic and hybrid nanoparticles;
  • new lasing materials;
  • strong coupling or weak coupling regime in organic and hybrid microcavities;
  • amplified spontaneous emission

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Photonic glasses (PGs) based on the self-assembly of monosized nanoparticles can be an effective tool for realizing disordered structures capable of tailoring light diffusion due to the establishment of Mie resonances. In particular, the wavelength position of these resonances depends mainly on the morphology (dimension) and optical properties (refractive index) of the building blocks. In this study, we report the fabrication and optical characterization of photonic glasses obtained via a self-assembling technique. Furthermore, we have demonstrated that the infiltration of these systems with a green-emitting polymer enhances the properties of the polymer, resulting in a large increase in its photoluminescence quantum yield and a 3 ps growing time of the photoluminescence time decay Finally, the development of the aforementioned system can serve as a suitable low-cost platform for the realization of lasers and fluorescence-based bio-sensors.
