Organic electronic devices are of widespread interest due to their potential applications in low-cost solar energy conversion and solid-state lighting. In the past decade, much effort have been devoted on studies of organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) and organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices. While efficiencies of these devices have been increased considerably, operation stability is still a major hurdle for some applications. In this project, we target on understanding (1) the interfacial physics and charge transport properties that controls the device characteristics, and (2) the possible degradation mechanisms of organic electronic devices. In addition, the role of doping induced high device performance and operational stability will be examined.
