Abstract

The synthesis, processing, and device performance of polymeric semiconductors has been reported. The polysilicon TFT technology is used for active matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) as the higher carrier mobilities of polysilicon as compared to a-Si, and increased stability of polysilicon-based devices under bias stress, are more effective in AMOLED. The radio frequency (RF) wireless applications are required in large area, self-powered, or maximized range device is partially driven by the fundamental physics of the frequency regimes in which they operate. Large area, high throughput manufacturing of organic electronic roducts is most efficiently enabled by solution based, additive printing techniques. Regioregular (RR) poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) is an exemplary semiconducting polymer due to its ready availability, ease of processing from solution, and its promising electrical properties arising from a highly crystalline microstructure.
