Data on Organic Electronics Detailed by Researchers at Corning, Inc. (High performance organic thin film transistors using chemically modified bottom contacts and dielectric surfaces)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- New research on Organic Electronics is the subject of a report. According to news reporting from Corning, New York, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "A compatible process of orthogonal self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) is applied to intentionally modify the bottom contacts and gate dielectric surfaces of organic thin film transistors (OTFTs)."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Corning, Inc., "This efficient interface modification is first achieved by 4-fluorothiophenol (4-FTP) SAM to chemically treat the silver source-drain (S/D) contacts while the silicon oxide (SiO2) dielectric interface is further primed by either hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) or octyltrichlorosilane (OTS-C8)."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Results show that the field effect mobilities of the bottom-gate bottom-contact PTDPPTFT4 transistors were significantly improved to 0.91 cm(2) V (1) s (1)."
