Along with the remarkable progress in the field of organic, quantum dot based- and recently emerged perovskite optoelectronics, solution-processed semiconductors have shown unprecedented successes. However, the characterization of these novel semiconductors is very challenging due to the highly disordered structure, low conductivity and relatively short charge carrier lifetimes. In this talk, I will present the optoelectronic characterization of these novel materials systems, mainly including time-resolved photoluminescence (TRPL), time-resolved microwave conductivity (TRMC) and optical-pump terahertz-probe (OPTP) spectroscopy. I will also introduce deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS), transient photovoltage (TPV) and Charge extraction by linearly increasing voltage (CELIV) to evaluate the fundamental properties of trap states, charge recombination and extraction based on operational devices. I will start with the basic principles and the set-up of these techniques. Then, the obtained optoelectronic properties, including real and imaginary conductivity, mobility, recombination rates, trap density and carrier lifetime, will be introduced for the design and optimization of various devices. At the end, I will discuss the key challenges facing optoelectronic characterization, and will also point out the opportunities, which are promising to explore and may require more research activities.
