Organic electronics constitute an innovative field, with interesting applications complementary to the silicon semiconductor technology. From a scientific perspective, there is large interest in the fundamental understanding of electrical transport in organic semiconductors. However, a well-developed microscopic description is still lacking, due to the complicated character of the many-body polaronic-type of charge carriers in molecular compounds. In this Thesis, we have experimentally studied… 

Organic single crystal field-effect transistors: advances and perspectives

The perfect molecular order in organic crystals, the absence of grain boundaries and the minimized concentration of charge traps in crystals make them extremely promising for the study of intrinsic

Organic semiconductor crystals.

This review provides a comprehensive overview of the molecular packing, morphology and charge transport features of organic semiconductor crystals, the control of crystallization for achieving high quality crystals and the device physics in the three main applications.

Progress in organic single-crystal field-effect transistors

Research on organic thin-film transistors tends to focus on improvements in device performance, but very little is understood about the ultimate limits of these devices, the microscopic physical

Organic single crystals: Addressing the fundamentals of organic electronics

Organic optoelectronics is an emerging field that exploits the unique properties of conjugated organic materials to develop new applications that require a combination of performance, low cost, light

High‐Performance Organic Single‐Crystal Transistors on Flexible Substrates

The electronic properties of organic single crystals have been intensely studied for well over 40 years. Until recently, organic single-crystal field-effect transistors have generated results that

Nanoscale Surface Morphology and Rectifying Behavior of a Bulk Single‐Crystal Organic Semiconductor

Single-crystal organic semiconductors represent perfect systems not only for studying basic science associated with transport of polaronic charge carriers but also for investigating the upper limits

Patterning organic single-crystal transistor arrays

The results suggest that the fabrication approach constitutes a promising step that might ultimately allow to utilize high-performance organic single-crystal field-effect transistors for large-area electronics applications.

Organic metal engineering for enhanced field-effect transistor performance.

An overview of the recent work devoted to the fabrication of OFETs with organic metals as electrodes will be carried out and it will be shown that in these devices not only is the matching of the HOMO or LUMO of the semiconductor with the metal work-function important, but other aspects such as the interface morphology can also play a critical role.

Single-molecule probes in organic field-effect transistors

The goal of this thesis is to study charge transport phenomena in organic materials. This is done optically by means of single-molecule spectroscopy in a field-effect transistor based on a molecular



Electronic Processes in Organic Crystals and Polymers

The first edition of Pope and Swenberg's Electronic Processes of Organic Crystals, published in 1982, became the classic reference in the field. It provides a tutorial on the experimental and related
