The structural characterisation of novel organic materials is of great importance for the development of new organic electronic technologies, such as organic photovoltaics (OPVs) and organic field effect transistors (OFETs). Conventionally, blending together a donor (p-type) and an acceptor (n-type) material forms the functional layer, the morphology of which is of great importance. An interpenetrating network on the nanometre scale with a large interface between both the materials is thought to be optimal for organic electronic applications. Structure formation of organic materials is dominated by the morphology of the blended materials, the understanding of which is important as their interplay mechanism can be influenced through the device manufacture protocol. A fundamental understanding on the structural properties of the nanocomposite organic materials is thus indispensable for the further development of the corresponding organic and hybrid electronic devices. Therefore organic nanocomposites are investigated through structural studies employing a broad range of advanced X-ray scattering methods, thus laying the scientific groundwork for a wide range of organic devices and the development of more efficient and environment friendly organic electronics.
