Investigation of the Electrical Parameters of the Organic Diode Modified with 4-[(3-Methylphenyl)(phenyl)amino] Benzoic Acid
MetadataShow full item record
4-[(3-Methylphenyl)(phenyl)amino]benzoic acid (MPPBA) self-assembled monolayer (SAM) molecules as hole injection is formed on p and n type Si and on indium-tin oxide (ITO) electrodes to investigate the effect on the electrical parameters of hole only organic device. The hole mobility improvement of organic device was attributed to an intermediate energy level formed between hole transport materials (HTL) (N,N'-Bis(naphthalen-1-yl)-N,N'-bis(phenyl)benzidine -NPB) and ITO when forming an ultrathin MPPBA layer, leading to increase of carrier mobility of the device. Space charge limited current (SCLC) technique is used to estimate the mobility of the NPB formed at the interface metal/organic Ohmic contact. The hole mobility of ITO/NPB/Al and ITO/MPPBA/NPB/Al devices were obtained as 1.80 x 10(-6) and 1.76 x 10(-3) cm(2)/Vs, at 1350 E (V/cm)(1/2) applied electric field, respectively. SAM modified devices has lower barrier height values. The electronic characteristic parameters of the ITO/(with or without MPPBA)/NPB/Al, Au/n-Si(or p-Si)/(with or without MPPBA)/Au contacts were calculated using current-voltage (I-V) measurements by Schottky type carrier injection.
