This collection provides a broad overview of current research and discoveries in photonic and optoelectronic polymers. It looks at their promising applications, particularly in efficient, reliable, and low-cost technologies for storing, processing, transmitting, and displaying information.Among the main topics covered are polymers for digital and holographic information storage; electroluminescent polymers for light sources; high-speed transmission, high-power amplification, and high-speed modulation of optical signals in polymer waveguides and gradient-index fibers; self-assemblyand nano-structure control for efficient photoelectronic and photonic properties; and thin-film transistors from organic semiconductors.
