The cover illustrates a polymer semiconductor highway for efficient transport of both electrons and holes. On p. 478, Samson A. Jenekhe, Mark D. Watson, and co-workers have demonstrated high-mobility single-component ambipolar field-effect transistors, by utilizing a new polymer semiconductor, and integrated them into complementary inverters. Polymer semiconductors with good ambipolar charge transport provide a simpler way to realize complementary circuits and other devices and functions in organic electronics.
