The state-of-art in organic solar cells, organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology for flexible displays and organic optical data storage is discussed. Organic heterojunction solar cells are very similar in construction to OLEDs, in that they typically consist of a glass substrate, an indium tin oxide (ITO) transparent conducting electrode, a hole transport layer, an electron transport layer and a top metal electrode. Organic thin film transistor (OTFT) could be used with OLED technology to produce inexpensive, flexible displays. Sarnoff Laboratories, developed a video-rate capable of flexible OLED display which highlighted the unique advantages of organic optoelectronics.
