Abstract: Organic thin-film transistors using 5, 5(')-diperfluorohexylcarbonyl-2,2('):5('),2('):5('),2(')-quaterthiophene (DFHCO-4T) as the electron conducting organic semiconductor are fabricated and the performance of these transistors with different top-contact metals is investigated. Transistors with Au source-drain top contacts attain an apparent saturation mobility of 4.6 cm(2)/V s, whereas this parameter is 100 times lower for similar transistors with Al/LiF top contacts. We explain this lower performance by the formation of a thin interfacial layer with poor charge injection properties resulting from a redox reaction between Al and DFHCO-4T.
