Impact of electron-phonon-interaction on transport in organic molecular crystals: Naphthalene as a case study — •Konrad Merkel, Michel Panhans, Sebastian Hutsch, and Frank Ortmann — Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden, TU Dresden, 01062 Dresden
Understanding charge carrier transport in organic semiconductors is a key requirement for developing advanced electronic and opto-electronic devices such as OLEDs, OFETs and organic solar cells. However the general transport mechanism remains unclear. It is widely believed that electron-phonon-interaction plays an important role, due to the large fluctuations in the electronic coupling associated to the van-der-Waals-bonds between adjacent molecules. The interaction leads to a subtle interplay of scattering and phonon-assisted transport. Within the Kubo formalism, we derive a simulation technique, where we model the low-frequency phonon modes as local and non-local disorder in a tight-binding scheme and where all material parameters are calculated from density functional theory. We study the impact of such modes in naphthalene and compare our results to studies from literature.
