Abstract

We report on the fabrication of N,N′-ditridecyl-perylene-3,4:9,10- tetracarboxylic diimide-C13 (PTCDI-C13), n-channel organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) with 30 nm Al 2O 3 whose surface has been un-modified or modified with hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) and thin hydrophobic CYTOP. Among all the devices, the OTFTs with CYTOP-modified dielectrics exhibit the most superior device performance and stability. The optimum post-annealing temperature for organic n-channels on CYTOP was also found to be as low as 80°C, although the post-annealing was previously implemented at 120-140°C for PTCDI domain growth in general. The low temperature of 80°C hardly damages the CYTOP/n-channel organic interface which is deformed at a temperature higher than the glass transition temperature of CYTOP (∼110°C). The pentacenequinone passivation layer turned out to be helpful to keep the interfacial trap density minimum, according to the photo-excited charge collection spectroscopy results for our 80°C-annealed OTFTs with CYTOP-modified dielectrics.
