Organic Thin-film Transistors Based on Polythiophene Nanowires Embedded in Insulating Polymer



Blending poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and amorphous polystyrene (PS) using a marginal solvent (CH2Cl2) with temperature-dependent solubility allows a reduction of the semiconductor content to as low as 3 wt% without considerable degradation of the field-effect electronic properties. Morphological and structural studies reveal that the P3HT molecules in these blends form highly crystalline, interconnected nanofibrillar networks.
