The Semiconductor Device Physics of Polyacetylene

Carrier mobilities are low, limited by thermally-activated transport between chains, these devices work well, and we find that these structures are remarkably free of surface states and bulk defect states with energy levels within the gap

Scholarcy highlights

  • Conjugated polymers which can be processed to form thin, coherent films can be used as the active layers in semiconductor device structures
  • We have used the Durham precursor route to polyacetylene to fabricate a range of unipolar devices including Schottky barrier diodes, MIS diodes and MISFET’s
  • Carrier mobilities are low, limited by thermally-activated transport between chains, these devices work well, and we find that these structures are remarkably free of surface states and bulk defect states with energy levels within the gap
  • This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves
