    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    This is an introductory chapter to develop the concept of electrons, holes and charge carriers and the distinction between them. Several applications of charge carriers in semiconductor devices are briefly described and both inorganic and organic devices are covered. The involvement of charge carriers in the mechanisms of operation of organic solar cells (OSCs) and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), including the thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) OLEDs is also described.
