Solution processibility is a unique advantage of organic semiconductors, permitting the low-cost production of flexible electronics under ambient conditions. However, the solution affinity to substrate surfaces remains a serious dilemma; liquid manipulation is more difficult on highly hydrophobic surfaces, but the use of such surfaces is indispensable for(More)
We analyzed the crystallization process of the CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite by observing real-time X-ray diffraction immediately after combining a PbI2 thin film with a CH3NH3I solution. A detailed analysis of the transformation kinetics demonstrated the fractal diffusion of the CH3NH3I solution into the PbI2 film. Moreover, the perovskite crystal was found to be(More)
Poly(2,5-dioctyloxy-1,4-phenylenevinylene) (DOPPV) was found to form a highly oriented film by a friction-transfer technique. Structural investigation of friction-transferred DOPPV was studied by means of polarized ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) absorption spectroscopy, polarized photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, and synchrotron-sourced grazing incident(More)
We investigate the structural influences on the device performance, especially on open-circuit voltage (V(OC)) in squaraine (SQ)/fullerene (C60) bilayer cells. Simply changing the SQ thickness could lead to 40% variation in V(OC) from 0.62 to 0.86 V. The ionization potential (IP) of SQ films and recombination at the anode surface as well as donor/acceptor(More)
Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) without a mesoporous TiO2 layer, that is, planar-type PSCs exhibit poorer cell performance as compared to PSCs with a porous TiO2 layer, owing to inefficient electron transfer from the perovskite layer to the compact TiO2 layer in the former case. The matching of the conduction band levels of perovskite and the compact TiO2(More)
Organolead-halide perovskites can be promising materials for next-generation solar cells because of its high power conversion efficiency. The method of precise fabrication is required because both solution-process and vacuum-process fabrication of the perovskite have problems of controllability and reproducibility. Vacuum deposition process was expected to(More)
A polydimethylsiloxane stamp was applied for the first time to the fabrication of n-channel thin-film transistors based on soluble small molecule organic semiconducting materials. The stamping method was found to facilitate film transfer onto a gate insulator surface irrespective of its surface free energy. We used [6,6]-phenyl-C(61)-butyric acid methyl(More)
