Time-resolved potentiometry of organic thin film transistors — •Jan Murawski, Tobias Mönch, Moritz Philipp Hein, Peter Milde, and Lukas M. Eng — Technische Universität Dresden, Institut für Angewandte Photophysik

High speed application still poses a challenge for organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) due to their low charge carrier mobilities, high driving voltages, and low on/off-current ratios. Few investigations have been reported on the switching dynamics of OTFTs on the nanoscale, even fewer in the relevant temporal operation regime as required for high speed applications. Yet, such investigations are crucial for understanding the bottle-necks in OTFTs dynamic performance.

Here, we introduce time-resolved Kelvin probe force microscopy (tr-KPFM) to track the time evolution of surface potential wave fronts inside the channel of a pentacene-based bottom-gate coplanar OTFT. The relevant dynamical evolution proceeds in the microsecond regime and is easily resolved by our quantitative tr-KPFM method. Comparing our experiment with simulations reveals the presence of Schottky barriers in the real device to be responsible not only for a reduced effective electric field across the transistor channel (and thus a reduced field mobility) but also for inducing a delayed re-injection of charge carriers at the electrode-semiconductor interface. Although the charge-carrier mobility would allow for faster switching, charging the Schottky barrier constitutes the bottle-neck to be overcome for higher working frequencies in OTFTs.
