Abstract

The authors report the fabrication of solution-processed 6,13-bis(triisopropylsilylethynyl) (TIPS) pentacene thin-film transistors with a cross-linked poly-4-vinylphenol (PVP) dielectric on a polyethersulphone (PES) substrate. The device exhibited useful electrical characteristics, including a saturation field effect mobility of 2.08 × 10 -2 cm 2 V -1 s -1, a current on/off ratio of 10 5, a threshold voltage of -2 V and an excellent subthreshold slope of 0.86 V/dec. It was demonstrated that the significant improvement in the subthreshold slope of TIPS-pentacene TFTs could be attributed to a decreased carrier trap density at the PVP/TIPS-pentacene film interface. Furthermore, a 1,2,3,4- tetrahydronaphthalene (Tetralin) solvent used in this study had a high boiling point, which had a positive effect on the morphology and the molecular ordering of the TIPS-pentacene film.
