The first study of the flexo-ionic effect, i.e., mechanical deformation-induced electric signal, of the recently discovered ionic liquid crystal elastomers (iLCEs) is reported. The measured flexo-ionic coefficients were found to strongly depend on the director alignment of the iLCE films and can be over 200 µC/m. This value is orders of magnitude higher than the flexo-electric coefficient found in insulating liquid crystals and is comparable to the well-developed ionic polymers (iEAPs). The

These results render high potential for iLCE-based devices for applications in sensors and wearable micropower generators.

2013 Nature Communications  
The inversion field-effect transistor is the basic device of modern microelectronics and is nowadays used more than a billion times on every state-of-the-art computer chip. In the future, this rigid technology will be complemented by flexible electronics produced at extremely low cost. Organic field-effect transistors have the potential to be the basic device for flexible electronics, but still need much improvement. In particular, despite more than 20 years of research, organic inversion mode

Here we discuss the first realization of organic inversion transistors and the optimization of organic depletion transistors by our organic doping technology. We show that the transistor parameters-in particular, the threshold voltage and the ON/OFF ratio-can be controlled by the doping concentration and the thickness of the transistor channel. Injection of minority carriers into the doped transistor channel is achieved by doped contacts, which allows forming an inversion layer.

Resistive switching of rose bengal devices: A molecular effect?

Silvia Karthäuser, Björn Lüssem, Martin Weides, Manuela Alba, Astrid Besmehn, Robert Oligschlaeger, Rainer Waser
2006 Journal of Applied Physics  
The resistive switching behavior of devices consisting of aluminum top electrode, molecular layer ͑rose bengal͒, and bottom electrode ͑zinc oxide and indium tin oxide͒ is examined. By measuring the current versus voltage dependence of these devices for various frequencies and by systematically varying the composition of the device, we show that the switching is an extrinsic effect that is not primarily dependent on the molecular layer. It is shown that the molecular layer is short circuited by

White organic light-emitting diodes: Status and perspective

Sebastian Reineke, Michael Thomschke, Björn Lüssem, Karl Leo
2013 Reviews of Modern Physics  
White organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are ultra-thin, large-area light sources made from organic semiconductor materials. Over the last decades, much research has been spent on finding the suitable materials to realize highly efficient monochrome and white OLEDs. With their high efficiency, color-tunability, and color-quality, white OLEDs are emerging to become one of the next generation light sources. In this review, we discuss the physics of a variety of device concepts that are

Owing to the fact that about 80 % of the internally generated photons are trapped within the thin-film layer structure, we put a second focus on reviewing promising concepts for improved light outcoupling.

We report on the characteristics of enhanced and balanced whitelight emission from bi-directional organic light-emitting diodes (BiOLEDs) enabled by the introduction of micro-cavity effects. The insertion of an additional metal layer between the indium tin oxide anode and the hole transporting layer results in similar light output of our BiOLEDs in both top and bottom direction and in reduced distortion of the electroluminescence spectrum. Furthermore, we find that by utilizing MC effects, the

Liquid-crystalline organic semiconductors exhibit unique properties that make them highly interesting for organic optoelectronic applications. Their optical and electrical anisotropies and the possibility to control the alignment of the liquid-crystalline semiconductor allow not only to optimize charge carrier transport, but to tune the optical property of organic thin-film devices as well. In this study, the molecular orientation in a liquid-crystalline semiconductor film is tuned by a novel

It is shown that a change in alignment of the liquidcrystalline semiconductor improves charge transport in single charge carrier devices profoundly. Comparing the current-voltage characteristics of single charge carrier devices with simulations shows an excellent agreement and from this an in-depth understanding of single charge carrier transport in two-terminal devices is obtained. Finally, p-i-n type organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) compatible with vacuum processing techniques used in state-of-the-art OLEDs are demonstrated employing liquidcrystalline host matrix in the emission layer. Controlling the order in thin films of organic semiconductors down to the molecular level has been recognized as a key to improving the performance of organic electronic devices 1-4 . Several techniques to influence crystal structure and molecular alignment have been introduced, in particular for solution-processed organic semiconductors. For wet-chemical processes, the complex interaction of the semiconductor material with the solvent presents an additional means to influence the molecular orientation. For example, it was demonstrated that a simple off-centre spin-coating method enables the formation of highly aligned molecular packing structure of the organic semiconductor 5 ; a solution shearing method alters the π-π stacking distance between co-facially stacked molecules and introduces lattice strain 6 ; and chemically tailoring of the organic/metal contact interface was shown to influence the microstructure of solution-cast organic thin films 7 . These processes resulted in molecular structures in organic field-effect transistors with high charge carrier mobility. However, solution processing is still highly challenging for highly-efficient organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) or solar cells consisting of a multitude of functional layers 8, 9 . Chemically orthogonal solvents have to be found that are not harmful to pre-deposited films, which significantly restricts the choice of materials and possible number of layers.

For lighting applications, Organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) need much higher brightness than for displays, leading to self-heating. Due to the temperature-activated transport in organic semiconductors, this can result in brightness inhomogeneities and catastrophic failure. Here, we show that due to the strong electrothermal feedback of OLEDs, the common spatial current and voltage distribution is completely changed, requiring advanced device modeling and operation concepts. Our study

As a consequence, for increasing voltage, regions with declining voltages are propagating through the device, and even more interestingly, a part of these regions show even decreasing currents, leading to strong local variation in luminance. The expected breakthrough of OLED lighting technology will require an improved price performance ratio, and the realization of modules with very high brightness but untainted appearance is considered to be an essential step into this direction. Thus, a deeper understanding of the control of electrothermal feedback will help to make OLEDs in lighting more competitive.

We studied the influence of heating effects in an organic device containing a layer sequence of n-doped / intrinsic / n-doped C 60 between crossbar metal electrodes. A strong positive feedback between current and temperature occurs at high current densities beyond 100 A/cm 2 , as predicted by the extended Gaussian disorder model (EGDM) applicable to organic semiconductors. These devices give a perfect setting for studying the heat transport at high power densities because C 60 can withstand

Infrared images of the device and detailed numerical simulations of the heat transport demonstrate that the electrical circuit produces a superposition of a homogeneous power dissipation in the active volume and strong heat sources localized at the contact edges. Hence, close to the contact edges, the current density is significantly enhanced with respect to the central region of the device , demonstrating that three-dimensional effects have a strong impact on a device with seemingly one-dimensional transport.
