Title: Systems and methods for organic semiconductor devices with sputtered contact layers

Abstract

Systems and methods for organic semiconductor devices with sputtered contact layers are provided. In one embodiment, an organic semiconductor device comprises: a first contact layer (140) comprising a first sputter-deposited transparent conducting oxide; an electron transport layer (130) interfacing with the first contact layer; a second contact layer (110) comprising a second sputter-deposited transparent conducting oxide; a hole transport layer interfacing with the second contact layer; and an organic semiconductor active layer (120) having a first side facing the electron transport layer and an opposing second side facing the hole transport layer; wherein either the electron transport layer or the hole transport layer comprises a buffering transport layer.
