Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Poly(p-phenylenevinylene) (PPV) thin films were prepared by using drop casting under high gravity condition in a centrifuge and PPV based field effect transistors (FET) were fabricated. PPV FETs with gold source-drain electrodes showed the p-channel characteristics. The field-effect hole mobility was improved to 8.8×10-4Cm2V-1s-1 by thermal treatment. PPV FET with calcium source-drain electrodes showed the n-channel characteristics and the field-effect electron mobility was 1.0×10-6cm2V-1s-1.
