Abstract

Diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP)-based conjugated polymer PDTDPPQT was synthesized and was used to perform epitaxial polymer crystal growth on removable 1,3,5-trichlorobenzene crystallite templates. A thin-film transistor (TFT) was successfully fabricated in well-grown large spherulites of PDTDPPQT. The charge carrier mobility along the radial direction of the spherulites was measured to be 5.46-12.04 cm<sup>2</sup> V<sup>-1</sup> s<sup>-1</sup>, which is significantly higher than that in the direction perpendicular to the radial direction. The dynamic response of charge transport was also investigated by applying a pulsed bias to TFTs loaded with a resistor (∼20 MΩ). The charge-transport behaviors along the radial direction and perpendicular to the radial direction were investigated by static and dynamic experiments through a resistor-loaded (RL) inverter. The RL inverter made of PDTDPPQT-based TFT operates well, maintaining a fairly high switching voltage ratio (V<inf>out</inf><sup>ON</sup>/V<inf>out</inf><sup>OFF</sup>) at a relatively high frequency when the source-drain electrodes are aligned parallel to the radial direction. (Figure Presented).
