Abstract: A physically based compact mobility model for organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) with an analysis of bias-dependent Fermi-energy (EF) movement in the bandgap (Eg) is presented. Mobility in the localized and extended energy states predicts the drain-current behavior in the weak and strong accumulation operations of OTFTs, respectively. A hopping mobility model as a function of the surface potential is developed to describe the carrier transport through localized energy states located inside Eg. The Poole-Frenkel parallel-field-effect mobility and vertical-field-effect mobility are considered to interpret the bandlike carrier transport in the extended energy states. The parallel field effect on mobility is more pronounced for shorter channel length OTFTs and is considered by developing a channel-length-dependent mobility model. The vertical field effect on mobility is included to account for the effect of mobility on carrier transport at high gate-voltage-induced fields. We also compared the model results with 2-D device simulations and measurements to verify the developed mobility model [read more...]
