Large-area polymer FET arrays and integrated circuits (ICs) are successfully demonstrated via a simple wire-bar-coating process. Both a highly crystalline conjugated polymer layer and very smooth insulating polymer layer are formed by a consecutive wire-bar-coating process on a 4-inch plastic substrate with a short processing time for application as the(More)
Fully printed perovskite solar cells are demonstrated with slot-die coating, a scalable printing method. A sequential slot-die coating process is developed to produce efficient perovskite solar cells and to be used in a large-scale roll-to-roll printing process. All layers excluding the electrodes are printed and devices demonstrate up to 11.96% power(More)
Perovskite solar cells (PeSCs) have been considered one of the competitive next generation power sources. To date, light-to-electric conversion efficiencies have rapidly increased to over 10%, and further improvements are expected. However, the poor device reproducibility of PeSCs ascribed to their inhomogeneously covered film morphology has hindered their(More)
The potential of a fl exible, roll-to-roll manufacturing process has made bulk-heterojunction (BHJ) organic solar cells (OSCs) very attractive as a promising solution to energy and environmental issues. [ 1–8 ] In polymer solar cells, device characteristics such as fi ll factor (FF), short-circuit current density (J sc ) and open-circuit voltage (V oc ) as(More)
A remarkable enhancement of p-channel properties is achieved in initially n-channel dominant ambipolar P(NDI2OD-T2) organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) by the use of the fluorinated high-k dielectric P(VDF-TrFE). An almost two orders of magnitude increase in hole mobility (~0.11 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1) ) originates from a strong interface modification at the(More)
Organic electronic devices have generated a great deal of research interest because of their low-cost fabrication, limitless material variety, and the myriad of potential applications. [ 1–9 ] Signifi cant research efforts have been directed towards improving the performance of devices such as organic fi eld-effect transistors (OFETs). [ 4–9 ] One important(More)
In the present study, a novel polar-solvent vapor annealing (PSVA) was used to induce a significant structural rearrangement in poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrene sulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) films in order to improve their electrical conductivity and work function. The effects of polar-solvent vapor annealing on PEDOT:PSS were systematically compared(More)
In this work, we synthesized water-soluble polyfluorene derivatives (WPFs) with anionic and/or cationic side chains, which were used as an indium tin oxide (ITO) cathode interfacial layer in inverted polymer solar cells. Three WPFs (WPFN+, WPFZW, and WPFS-) were obtained via Suzuki coupling reactions. Their solubility in polar solvents allowed the WPFs to(More)
