Organic Semiconductor Formulations for Improved Manufacturing Capabilities NU 2011-041 Inventors Antonio Facchetti Tobin J. Marks* Hiroyhuki Miyauchi Pierre-Luc Boudreault Abstract Organic semiconductors have successfully been used to generate electronic, optical, or optoelectronic devices. To be viable for commercial application, however, the manufacture of these entities needs to be highly feasible and cost-effective - features that have proven somewhat elusive in production involving organic semiconductor materials. Northwestern investigators have developed polymeric and molecular semiconductors using a variety of formulas that exhibit good semiconductor performance in addition to manufacturing feasibility advantages, such as solution processability. The materials produced can be used to fabricate a variety of devices with organic semiconductor capabilities, such as photovoltaic devices, transistors, and light-emitting diodes. Applications o Organic semiconductors for use in fabrication of transistors and other devices Advantages o Good performance, exhibiting one or more of the following properties: large hole mobility, large electron mobility, low threshold voltages, and high current on-off ratios o Ease of manufacture through solution-based processing IP Status A patent application has been filed.
