Light emitting organic materials, such as conjugated polymers and low-molar-mass compounds,
exhibit appealing characteristics for the realization of active optical devices, including high luminescence
efficiency, wide emission tunability, as well as simple and cheap processing. In particular, photonic crystals
and their integration in planar and vertical microcavities based on organics provide an effective approach to
control the light-matter interaction in solids, and to design and fabricate devices. Examples of applications
which are here reviewed include distributed feedback lasers, nanopatterned organic light-emitting diodes
and photonic crystal waveguides, and vertical architectures exploited in resonators, photodiodes, and
microcavities showing strong exciton-photon coupling.
