Investigation of charge transport properties of [1]Benzothieno[3,2-b][1]-benzothiophene single-crystals in field-effect transistor configuration

Abstract : Single-crystals of unsubstituted [1]Benzothieno[3,2-b][1]-benzothiophene (BTBT) were prepared by physical vapor transport deposition (VTP). The packing structure and morphology of the crystals were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), polarized optical microscopy (POM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The charge transport properties of BTBT single-crystals were also investigated via bottom contact/bottom gate (BC/BG) organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) on both SiO2 and n-octadecyltrichlorosilane (OTS) treated surfaces. A maximum hole mobility value of 0.032 cm2V−1s−1 was measured on the OTS substrate. In addition, single-crystal OFETs with ion gel top gate (TG) configuration were also investigated for low voltage operation. This work represents the first investigation of charge carrier mobility of a simple BTBT in transistor configuration and highlights the essential role of the BTBT substitution in charge transport properties.
