      Front Cover: The role of interfaces in organic spin valves revealed through spectroscopic and transport measurements (Phys. Status Solidi B 1/2012)

      The transfer of electrons across the interface between inorganic and organic materials is critical to the performance of organic light emitting diodes, field effect transistors, and photovoltaic devices. In their Feature Article on pp. 9–17, Drew et al. summarize experimental results that have advanced our understanding of spin-polarized charge carrier transfer across ferromagnetic metal/organic semiconductor interfaces. The authors highlight key spectroscopic studies that have revealed insights into the nature of the electronic structure, in particular between Alq3 and Co and Fe surfaces. They discuss the relationship between energy level diagrams for these systems and transport measurements made on spin-valve devices. The cover picture shows that the insertion of a LiF layer at the interface between a ferromagnetic electrode and the organic semiconductor in an organic spin valve can change the probability of extracting spin minority or spin majority carriers, due to a shift in the vacuum level.

      Back Cover: Impact of short-range order and clusterization on the bandgap bowing: First-principles calculations on the electronic properties of metastable (GaAs)1–x(Ge2)x alloys (Phys. Status Solidi B 1/2012)

      H. Kawai, G. Giorgi and K. Yamashita

      Article first published online: 12 DEC 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201190040

      The paper by Kawai et al. (pp. 29–37) aims to complete previous theoretical analysis on Ge-doped GaAs alloys, here mainly focusing on the impact that the formation of GaAs and Ge clusters, in conjunction with their morphology, has in the final bandgap of such systems. For investigating the relationship between the local geometry of the alloy vs. the bandgap opening, the authors analyze several representative extended alloy models with different local geometry and composition. The back cover shows the preferential formation of n- and p-type GaAs clusters in a Ge matrix (top panel) and their charge density (bottom panel). The atoms of the Ge matrix are depicted by green intermediate spheres, the Ga atoms by large pink and the As atoms by small purple ones. The agreement with the experimental trend shows the appropriateness of the modellization (inset plot).
