About the book

The aim of this book project is to cover a comprehensive and up-to-date collection of LEDs. This book will cover the recent advances in perovskite LEDs, organic LEDs, Quantum dot LEDs, nitride-based LEDs, etc. Organic LEDs are well known and already in the market and quantum dot-based LEDs are based on nanoparticles, and their structures are similar to the OLEDs. In 2014, the first perovskite LED was fabricated and after that, a lot of improvements have been done in this area. III-nitrides semiconductor materials including GaN, InN, AlN, and their alloys InGaN, AlGaN, etc. are promising semiconductors. The Nobel Prize in Physics 2014 was awarded jointly to Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano, and Shuji Nakamura for the invention of proficient blue LEDs. After the invention of GaN-based blue LEDs, there was a revolutionary development in the III-nitrides-based semiconductor industry worldwide.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ana Cink

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
