We propose a theoretical description of the charge distribution and the contact resistance in coplanar organic field-effect transistors (OFETs). Based on the concept that the current in organic semiconductors is only carried by injected carriers from the electrodes, an analytical formulation for the charge distribution inside the organic layer was derived. We found that the contact resistance in coplanar OFETs arises from a sharp low-carrier-density zone at the source/channel edge because the… CONTINUE READING
