Organic Electronics: Charge Transport Over Multiple Length Scales in Supramolecular Fiber Transistors: Single Fiber Versus Ensemble Performance (Adv. Mater. 3/2014)




The transistor characteristics of self-assembled organic fibers are assessed both individually and at the ensemble level by Paolo Samorì and co-workers on page 430. Their work demonstrates the first evidence of band-like transport in a solution-processed n-type organic semiconductor, and an intrinsic electron mobility that is several orders of magnitude higher than in fiber ensembles or spin-cast films, highlighting the performance potential of self-assembled organic architectures.
