Abstract [en]

We have investigated the transport properties of the semiconducting polymer poly(3-(2'-methoxy-5'-octylphenyl)thiophene) (POMeOPT). We have measured the current-voltage (C-V) characteristics of single polymer layer devices in two regimes contact limited current and bulk-limited current. The passage from one regime to the other was done upon insertion of a conducting polymer poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) doped with poly(4-styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT-PSS) between the metallic electrode and the semiconducting polymer. With PEDOT-PSS as electrode, the polymer gave space-charge limited current (SCLC) with the mobility dependent on electric field. Fitting the data, we were able to obtain important parameters, such as the zero-field mobility and the characteristic field. We have compared our results with the well-studied polymer poly(2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethyl-hexyloxy)-1,4-phenylene vinylene) (MEH-PPV) in similar experiments earlier reported. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
