    This book addresses the development of OLEDs based on rare-earth and transition metal complexes, especially focusing on europium, terbium, ruthenium, and rhenium. The idea is to explain how these organic materials can be used to build OLEDs. Taking into account the actual state of the art and the expected pathways, the book proposes further developments in the field. It presents intensive experimental results for a better explanation. This book is meant for scientists and engineers who work in this new OLED framework. It also has didactic utility for graduation students and teachers working on optoelectronics.

    "Organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) have become a major area of research, especially in industries where the requirement of cheaper and more flexible displays and lighting sources has become a critical factor. This book contains valuable information about the use of rare-earth and transition- metal organic complexes in OLEDs and offers a fascinating way of joining inorganic and organic worlds together. The text is simple to read and presents important references for those who are interested in getting a deeper understanding of the subject."
