Due to potential use in non volatile memory application, Poly(vinylidene fluoride/trifluoroethylene) (P(VDF-TrFE)) is a great deal of interest, especially to produce organic field effect transistors (OFET). Right now it was found that Aluminum is one of the cost-effective inorganic electrode candidate. On the other hand, poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(4-styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) shows promising behavior for the application as organic electrode. In part of our investigations we have systematically studied surface interactions of organic ferroelectric thin films (P(VDF-TrFE)) with inorganic (Al) and organic layers (PEDOT:PSS). By X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is has been found that there is a interfacial reaction with Al and the copolymer. In contrast, for electrodes, made of PEDOT: PSS, we found not such kind of behavior. In this case, we found no evidence for any surface reaction. Furthermore, we present our results concerning the orientation of permanent dipoles in the co-polymer (formed between hydrogen and fluorine atom). Here, we use Near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) analysis at the U 49/2 - PGM2 beam line of the BESSY-II Synchrotron.
