Analytical Model for Gaussian Disorder Traps in Organic Thin-Film Transistor

  title={Analytical Model for Gaussian Disorder Traps in Organic Thin-Film Transistor},
  author={Qiu-song Chen and Juan E. Sanchez and Dong Lin and Yanlian Lei and Guodong Zhu},
Structural defects and chemical impurities exist in organic semiconductors acting as trap centers for the excited states. This work presents a novel analytical model to calculate the trapping and detrapping rates between two Gaussian density of states. Miller-Abrahams rate and Fermi–Dirac statistics are employed in this model. The introduction of effective filled and empty sites for correlated bands greatly simplifies the expression of recombination rate. A technology computer-aided design…
