  • Molecular doping of organic electronics has shown promise to sensitively modulate important device metrics. One critical challenge is the disruption of structure order upon doping of highly crystalline organic semiconductors, which significantly reduces the charge carrier mobility. This paper demonstrates a new method to achieve large modulation of charge carrier mobility via channel doping without disrupting the molecular ordering. Central to the method is the introduction of nanopores into the organic semiconductor thin films via a simple and robust templated meniscus-guided coating method. Using this method, the charge carrier mobility of C8-benzothieno[3,2-b]benzothiophene transistors is boosted by almost sevenfold. This papermore » further demonstrates enhanced electron transport by close to an order of magnitude in a diketopyrrolopyrrole-based donor–acceptor polymer. Combining spectroscopic measurements, density functional theory calculations, and electrical characterizations, the doping mechanism is identified as partial-charge-transfer induced trap filling. The nanopores serve to enhance the dopant/organic semiconductor charge transfer reaction by exposing the π-electrons to the pore wall.« less
  • High mobility n-type Si{sub 1-x}Ge{sub 0.38} strained Si modulation doped structures have been fabricated on relaxed graded Si{sub 1-x}Ge{sub x} buffers by rapid thermal chemical vapor deposition. The mobility and density of the two-dimensional electron gas was studied as a function of spacer thickness of the modulation-doped structure.
  • Self-consistent calculations for solving the Poisson and Schrödinger equations were performed in order to study parallel conduction in the In{sub 0.52}Al{sub 0.48}As barrier layer in In{sub 0.53}Ga{sub 0.47}As/In{sub 0.52}Al{sub 0.48}As Modulation Doped Field Effect Transistors. It is shown that the parallel conducting layer occupied sub-bands can be entirely depleted by wet chemical etching of the upper part of the un-doped In{sub 0.52}Al{sub 0.48}As Schottky layer without affecting the total carrier concentration at the In{sub 0.53}Ga{sub 0.47}As quantum well.
  • The dependence of oxygen vacancy suppression on dopant species in amorphous indium oxide (a-InO{sub x}) thin film transistors (TFTs) is reported. In a-InO{sub x} TFTs incorporating equivalent atom densities of Si- and W-dopants, absorption of oxygen in the host a-InO{sub x} matrix was found to depend on difference of Gibbs free energy of the dopants for oxidation. For fully oxidized films, the extracted channel conductivity was higher in the a-InO{sub x} TFTs containing dopants of small ionic radius. This can be explained by a reduction in the ionic scattering cross sectional area caused by charge screening effects.
