Since the discovery of the metallic properties of doped polyacetylene in 1977, remarkable progress has been made in synthesizing conjugated polymers, in understanding their properties, and in developing them for use in electronic and optical devices. Currently, polymer light-emitting diodes (LEDs), photodetectors, photovoltaic cells, sensors, and field-effect transistors are all being pushed towards commercialization by academic and industrial research teams. These devices are important not… CONTINUE READING
