Abstract

This work studies the effect of post annealing of pentacene on a flexible substrate through the examination of electrical properties and surface morphologies. It is confirmed that the best performance of devices is achieved when the post annealing temperature is 60 °C, since the grain size increases, which decrease grain boundaries caused charge transport limit. We can also confirmed the large threshold voltage shift of device annealed at 60 °C that means the lower trap density between channel and insulator interface. The device annealed at 60 °C exhibits a saturation mobility of 1.99 cm2/V · s, an on/off ratio of 1.87 × 10 4, and a subthreshold slope of 2.5 V/decade.
