23_03/2013Field-Effect Transistors: Heterogeneous Nucleation Promotes Carrier Transport in Solution-Processed Organic Field-Effect Transistors (Adv. Funct. Mater. 3/2013)

In printed electronics, the drying semiconductor solution undergoes a solution-to-solid phase transformation that must yield optimal microstructure and performance. In small-molecule organic fieldeffect transistors (OFETs), it is crucial to yield films with large area lamellar coverage with excellent inplane p-stacking. On page 291 Aram Amassian and co-workers present new methodology and insight, which help to ensure that the drying solution crystallizes in optimal ways to promote carrier transport in OFETs.
