A solution-processed anthradithiophene derivative, 5,11-bis(4-triethylsilylphenylethynyl)anthradithiophene (TESPE-ADT), is studied for use as the semiconducting material in thin-film transistors (TFTs). To enhance the electrical performance of the devices, two different kinds of solution processing (spin-coating and drop-casting) on various gate dielectrics as well as additional post-treatment are employed on thin films of TESPE-ADT, and p-channel OTFT transport with hole mobilities as high as ∼0.12 cm2 V−1 s−1 are achieved. The film morphologies and formed microstructures of the semiconductor films are characterized in terms of film processing conditions and are correlated with variations in device performance.
