Electronic Properties of Organic-Based Interfaces

  • Leeor Kronik and Norbert Koch


Organic-based interfaces can possess a range of surprising electronic properties that are of intense interest from both the basic science and the applied research points of view. In this issue of MRS Bulletin, we provide state-of-the-art overviews of selected topics involving three complementary aspects of the electronic properties of organic-based interfaces: the nascent electronics technologies that would gain from improved understanding and control of such interfaces; the novel properties that organic-based interfaces may possess; and the experimental and theoretical challenges afforded by such studies.
