      Front Cover: Charge-transport physics of high-mobility molecular semiconductors (Phys. Status Solidi B 9/2012)

      Henning Sirringhaus, Tomo Sakanoue and Jui-Fen Chang

      Article first published online: 7 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201290022

      The Feature Article by Sirringhaus et al. (pp. 1655–1676) is focused on understanding the charge-transport physics of high-mobility organic semiconductors at a molecular level. Recent high-mobility small-molecule and conjugated polymer materials are reviewed, with a focus on crystalline materials that have been able to exceed mobilities of 0.5-1 cm2/V s. The authors discuss some of the main, competing factors that govern charge transport in these materials and present theoretical approaches that have been developed to describe systems in which moderately strong intermolecular electronic interactions and strong electron-phonon interactions are present. Finally, recent experimental results are reviewed that address the important question of whether at room temperature the charge carriers in these high-mobility organic semiconductors are in fact simply extended Bloch electrons that undergo occasional scattering processes, or are localized on individual molecules and move by hopping.

      Back Cover: Possible existence of field-induced Josephson junctions (Phys. Status Solidi B 9/2012)

      Krzysztof Pomorski and Przemyslaw Prokopow

      Article first published online: 7 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/pssb.201290023

      The existence of field-induced junctions opens up possibilities for very easy manufacture of electronic devices that show no dissipation and have very simple architecture. They can be created by putting ferromagnetic or ferroelectric material on top of a superconductor. Their properties can be tuned in a continuous manner. The transition from the weak-link regime to the tunneling regime is demonstrated by Pomorski and Prokopow (pp. 1805–1813). This permits building tunable single Josephson junctions, arrays and matrices of Josephson junctions, SQUIDs, current limiters, qubits and a broad range of logical gates. Apart from the applications the new family of Josephson junctions also provides opportunities for studying the fundamental physics of magnetism and vortices.
