High Ambipolar and Balanced Carrier Mobility in Regioregular Poly(3-hexylthiophene)
Choulis, S A, Kim, Y, Nelson, J, Bradley, D D, Giles, M, Shkunov, M and McCulloch, I (2004) High Ambipolar and Balanced Carrier Mobility in Regioregular Poly(3-hexylthiophene) Applied Physics Letters, 85 (17).
The carrier transport of carefully purified regioregular poly(3-hexylthiophene) films was studied using time-of-flight photocurrent measurements. The authors find balanced ambipolar transport with a room-temp. mobility for holes of 3 * 10-4 cm2 V-1 s-1 and for electrons of 1.5 * 10-4 cm2 V-1 s-1 at elec. fields >=105 V/cm. The transport is relatively field independent and weakly temp. dependent, pointing to a high degree of chem. regioregularity and purity. These factors make poly(3-hexylthiophene) attractive for use in a range of electronic applications.
