Abstract

We study charge injection and transport in PbSe nanocrystal thin films. By engineering the contact metallurgy and nanocrystal ligand exchange chemistry and surface passivation, we demonstrate partial Fermi-level pinning at the metal-nanocrystal interface and an insulator-to-metal transition with increased coupling and doping, allowing us to design high conductivity and mobility PbSe nanocrystal films. We construct complementary nanocrystal circuits from n-type and p-type transistors realized from a single nanocrystal material by selecting the contact metallurgy.
