Organic semiconductors are characterized by small spin-orbit coupling, which leads to a relatively long spin relaxation time. This makes them particularly interesting materials for spintronics. We describe spin transport in the thiophene-based polymer PBTTT using a recently developed generalization of the Kubo formalism to spin and an appropriate definition of the spin current operator in tight-binding form to investigate the spin conductivity tensor in PBTTT. The transfer integrals of the Hamiltonian and spin current operator are extracted from the DFT band structure with and without spin-orbit coupling. The spin propagation and spin conductivity for different spin-orbit transfer integral models are compared and the energy dependence and relaxation are analyzed.
