      The article by Carsten Deibel (pp. 2731–2736) was selected for the cover of this issue, largely dedicated to the symposium “Organic Photovoltaics: from Single Molecules to Devices” (held in the framework of the DPG Spring Meeting 2009 of the German Physical Society), by the guest editors S. Rathgeber, K. Leo, and T. Thurn-Albrecht. Hybrid organic polymer–fullerene solar cells are the focus of recent attention due to their great potential to provide for low-cost, high-efficiency photovoltaics on flexible substrates (upper right in the cover picture). The efficiency of such devices, from light absorption to photocurrent flow, is dominated by the processes of charge separation and recombination (left). The combination of simulations and experimental techniques, such as photo-induced charge extraction (lower right), allows for the identification of the contribution of these fundamental processes to the photocurrent.

      The article by Kameyama and coworkers (pp. 2851–2856) reports on a new strategy for reversibly photo-controlling the room-temperature magnetism in diluted magnetic semiconductors. Such fine and reversible control is obtained by coating ZnO nanoparticles with specially designed azobenzene-derivatized thiols. In addition to the photochromic groups the thiols act as a trigger for the generation of ferromagnetism at ZnO[BOND]S interface. As a result, the nanoparticles show significant photoinduced changes in the saturated magnetization value at room temperature by alternating illumination with UV and visible light. These photo-magnetic effects can be attributed to photoinduced changes in the surface state at ZnO surfaces by photoisomerization of the azobenzene-derivatized ligands, which is accompanied by a change in the LUMO energy level.

      High-molecular weight anthracene containing PPE-PPV copolymers with linear and/or branched alkyl side chains have been synthesized and investigated in polymer–fullerene bulk heterojunction solar cells. In their paper on pp. 2695–2699, Rupali Jadhav et al. report on how, by varing the nature and length of alkyl side-chains, the ordering in thin films can be finely tuned. It is found that the I–V characteristics of such photovoltaic devices can be correlated with the photophysical, electrochemical, and structural properties of the respective PPE-PPV copolymers.
