Title: High Carrier Mobility Polythiophene Thin Films: Structure Determination by Experiment and Theory

Abstract

The structure within crystalline thin films of a high-carrier-mobility polythiophene is studied with complementary characterization methods and first-principles theory. As shown in the figure, two important structural aspects are revealed: (1) a slip in the face-to-face pi-pi packing, which strongly influences carrier mobility, and (2) the interdigitation of highly trans side chains between vertically adjacent lamellae.
