Organic Thin-Film Transistors: Controlling Nucleation and Crystallization in Solution-Processed Organic Semiconductors for Thin-Film Transistors (Adv. Mater. 35/2009)
The grain size in solution-processed organic semiconductor thin films for TFTs can be tuned over a range of three orders of magnitude, report Yueh-Lin Loo and co-workers on p. 3605. The process involves the addition of fractional quantities of “impurities” that are capable of seeding the crystallization of the organic semiconductor, and the control thus exerted permitted studies that correlated increasing device mobility with increasing grain size.
