(2020) 'Polymer light‐emitting transistors with charge‐carrier mobilities exceeding 1 cm2 V−1 s−1.', Advanced electronic materials., 6 (1). p. 1901132.
The vast majority of conjugated polymer-based light emitting field-effect transistors (LEFETs) are characterized by low charge carrier mobilities typically in the range 10-5 to 10-3 cm2 V-1 s-1 range. Fast carrier transport is a highly desirable characteristic for high frequency LEFET operation and, potentially, for use in electrically-pumped lasers. Unfortunately, high mobility organic semiconductors are often characterised by strong intermolecular π-π interactions that reduce luminescence. Development of new materials and/or device concepts that overcome this hurdle are therefore required. We report single organic semiconductor layer, light-emitting transistors that combine the highest hole mobilities reported to date for any polymer-based LEFET, with encouraging light emission characteristics. We achieve this in a single polymer layer LEFET, which was further enhanced through the use of a small-molecule/conjugated polymer blend system that possesses a film microstructure which supports enhanced charge carrier mobility (3.2 cm2 V-1 s-1) and promising light emission characteristics (1600 cd m-2) as compared to polymer-only based LEFETs. This simple approach represents an attractive strategy to further advance the performance of solution-processed LEFETs.
