Au-poly(3-hexylthiophene) Contact Behaviour at High Resolution

Lei, C. H., Das, Arindam, Elliott, Martin, Macdonald, John Emyr and Turner, M. L. 2004. Au-poly(3-hexylthiophene) Contact Behaviour at High Resolution. Synthetic Materials 145 (2-3) , pp. 217-220. 10.1016/j.synthmet.2004.05.003

The electrical properties of Au-on-poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and P3HT on Au contacts have been compared, with high spatial resolution, using phase-mode electrostatic force microscopy (EFM-phase). The electrical potential profile, deduced from the phase measurements, demonstrates the existence of a high-resistance region in the P3HT close to the Au-on-P3HT contact, whereas the P3HT-on-Au contact exhibits good Ohmic behaviour. The results are consistent with recent I–V measurements, and can be explained in terms of defects induced during thermal evaporation of gold.
