Special Issue Information Polymer solar cells, which utilize organic polymers as photoactive materials, are a novel type of solar cell. These cells, possessing several advantages, including high flexibility, light weight, and low fabrication cost, were prepared using coating methods; therefore, they are currently an important and widely studied research topic in the field of solar cells. As one of the pioneers of polymer solar cell research in China, academician Yongfang Li has led his research team and forged ahead in this field for almost two decades. Through his research efforts, Li has achieved significant results in such areas as small-molecule and polymer donor materials, fullerene and non-fullerene acceptor materials, materials for electrode modification layers, and the fabrication of high-performance cells, and he has made many important contributions to the development of polymer solar cells. In addition, Li’s research team has reported various results in several research fields, including the electrochemistry of conductive polymers, preparation of inorganic semiconductor nanocrystal solutions, and organic/inorganic hybrid optoelectronic devices, and these results have had a profound impact in their relevant fields. To date, Li has published more than 700 research papers, which have gathered more than 30,000 citations. He has received one State Natural Science Award (2nd class), one Natural Science Award of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (1st class), and one Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Award (1st class) for his research achievements. August 2018 marks Li’s 70th birthday; therefore, this special issue has been prepared to commemorate the occasion and to pay tribute to his pursuit of realism and pragmatism and to his perseverance in his academic endeavors.
Submission Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.whxb.pku.edu.cn/journalx_wlhx_en/authorLogOn.action. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles, communications and perspectives are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for announcement on this website. Manuscripts written in English or Chinese can be accepted.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. We do not charge any fees from authors.
