Title: Doping molecular organic semiconductors by diffusion from the vapor phase

Abstract

Spiro-OMeTAD can be doped by infiltration of F 4 TCNQ from the vapor phase without causing crystallization. Optical spectroscopy and thermopower measurements examined the question of the formation of dication states by charge transfer doping.
