Eisner F, Foot G, Yan J, et al., 2021, Emissive charge-transfer states at hybrid inorganic/organic heterojunctions enable low non-radiative recombination and high-performance photodetectors, Advanced Materials, ISSN: 0935-9648
Hybrid devices based on a heterojunction between inorganic and organic semiconductors have offered a means to combine the advantages of both classes of materials in optoelectronic devices, but, in practice, the performance of such devices has often been disappointing. Here, it is demonstrated that charge generation in hybrid inorganic–organic heterojunctions consisting of copper thiocyanate (CuSCN) and a variety of molecular acceptors (ITIC, IT-4F, Y6, PC70BM, C70, C60) proceeds via emissive charge-transfer (CT) states analogous to those found at all-organic heterojunctions. Importantly, contrary to what has been observed at previous organic–inorganic heterojunctions, the dissociation of the CT-exciton and subsequent charge separation is efficient, allowing the fabrication of planar photovoltaic devices with very low non-radiative voltage losses (0.21 ± 0.02 V). It is shown that such low non-radiative recombination enables the fabrication of simple and cost-effective near-IR (NIR) detectors with extremely low dark current (4 pA cm−2) and noise spectral density (3 fA Hz−1/2) at no external bias, leading to specific detectivities at NIR wavelengths of just under 1013 Jones, close to the performance of commercial silicon photodetectors. It is believed that this work demonstrates the possibility for hybrid heterojunctions to exploit the unique properties of both inorganic and organic semiconductors for high-performance opto-electronic devices.

Wyatt-Moon G, Georgiadou DG, Zoladek-Lemanczyk A, et al., 2018, Flexible nanogap polymer light-emitting diodes fabricated via adhesion lithography (a-Lith), Journal of Physics: Materials, Vol: 1, ISSN: 2515-7639
We report the development of coplanar green colour organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) based on asymmetric nanogap electrodes fabricated on different substrates including glass and plastic. Using adhesion lithography (a-Lith) we pattern Al and Au layers acting as the cathode and anode electrodes, respectively, separated by an inter-electrode distance of <15 nm with an aspect ratio of up to 106. Spin-coating the organic light-emitting polymer poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene-alt-bithiophene) (F8T2) on top of the asymmetric Al–Au nanogap electrodes results in green light-emitting nanogap OLEDs with promising operating characteristics. We show that the scaling of the OLED's width from 4 to 200 mm can substantially improve the light output of the device without any adverse effects on the manufacturing yield. Furthermore, it is found that the light-emitting properties in the nanogap area differ from the bulk organic film, an effect attributed to confinement of the conjugated polymer chains in the nanogap channel. These results render a-Lith particularly attractive for low cost facile fabrication of nanoscale light-emitting sources and arrays on different substrates of arbitrary size.

Large-area manufacturing of flexible nanoscale electronics has long been sought by the printed electronics industry. However, the lack of a robust, reliable, high throughput and low-cost technique that is capable of delivering high-performance functional devices has hitherto hindered commercial exploitation. Herein we report on the extensive range of capabilities presented by adhesion lithography (a-Lith), an innovative patterning technique for the fabrication of coplanar nanogap electrodes with arbitrarily large aspect ratio. We use this technique to fabricate a plethora of nanoscale electronic devices based on symmetric and asymmetric coplanar electrodes separated by a nanogap < 15 nm. We show that functional devices including self-aligned-gate transistors, radio frequency diodes and rectifying circuits, multi-colour organic light-emitting nanodiodes and multilevel non-volatile memory devices, can be fabricated in a facile manner with minimum process complexity on a range of substrates. The compatibility of the formed nanogap electrodes with a wide range of solution processable semiconductors and substrate materials renders a-Lith highly attractive for the manufacturing of large-area nanoscale opto/electronics on arbitrary size and shape substrates.
Tountas M, Georgiadou DG, Zeniou A, et al., 2018, Plasma induced degradation and surface electronic structure modification of Poly(3-hexylthiophene) films, Polymer Degradation and Stability, Vol: 149, Pages: 162-172, ISSN: 0141-3910
© 2017 Elsevier Ltd Plasma treatment is an environmentally friendly solution for modifying or nanostructuring the surface of several materials including photoactive polymers. The detailed characterization of the effect of plasma treatment on chemical and optoelectronic properties of photoactive polymers is, therefore, of specific interest. Herein, the effect of the exposure of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) thin films to plasma created in three different gases (oxygen, argon and hydrogen) was studied. A range of spectroscopic techniques, such as x-ray (XPS) and ultraviolet (UPS) photoelectron spectroscopy in conjunction with UV–vis absorption, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopies, are employed to quantify the extent of chemical modification occurring in each particular case. It is shown that oxygen plasma treatment leads to the disruption of the π-conjugation via the direct oxidation of the sulfur atom of the thiophene ring while the aliphatic side chain remains nearly unaffected. An oxidation mechanism is proposed according to which the sulfur atom of the thiophene ring is oxidized into sulfoxides and sulfones, which subsequently degraded into sulfonates or sulfonic acids in a relatively small degree. For argon and hydrogen plasma treatments some oxidation products are detected only at the polymer surface. In all cases the polymer surface Fermi level is shifted closer to the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) energy after plasma treatment indicating p-type doping arising from surface oxidation.

Adhesion lithography (a-Lith) is a versatile fabrication technique used to produce asymmetric coplanar electrodes separated by a <15 nm nanogap. Here, we use a-Lith to fabricate deep ultraviolet (DUV) photodetectors by combining coplanar asymmetric nanogap electrode architectures (Au/Al) with solution-processable wide-band-gap (3.5-3.9 eV) p-type semiconductor copper(I) thiocyanate (CuSCN). Because of the device's unique architecture, the detectors exhibit high responsivity (≈79 A W-1) and photosensitivity (≈720) when illuminated with a DUV-range (λpeak = 280 nm) light-emitting diode at 220 μW cm-2. Interestingly, the photosensitivity of the photodetectors remains fairly high (≈7) even at illuminating intensities down to 0.2 μW cm-2. The scalability of the a-Lith process combined with the unique properties of CuSCN paves the way to new forms of inexpensive, yet high-performance, photodetectors that can be manufactured on arbitrary substrate materials including plastic.
Semple J, Georgiadou DG, Wyatt-Moon G, et al., 2017, Flexible diodes for radio frequency (RF) electronics: a materials perspective, Semiconductor Science and Technology, Vol: 32, ISSN: 0268-1242
Over the last decade, there has been increasing interest in transferring the research advances in radiofrequency (RF) rectifiers, the quintessential element of the chip in the RF identification (RFID) tags, obtained on rigid substrates onto plastic (flexible) substrates. The growing demand for flexible RFID tags, wireless communications applications and wireless energy harvesting systems that can be produced at a low-cost is a key driver for this technology push. In this topical review, we summarise recent progress and status of flexible RF diodes and rectifying circuits, with specific focus on materials and device processing aspects. To this end, different families of materials (e.g. flexible silicon, metal oxides, organic and carbon nanomaterials), manufacturing processes (e.g. vacuum and solution processing) and device architectures (diodes and transistors) are compared. Although emphasis is placed on performance, functionality, mechanical flexibility and operating stability, the various bottlenecks associated with each technology are also addressed. Finally, we present our outlook on the commercialisation potential and on the positioning of each material class in the RF electronics landscape based on the findings summarised herein. It is beyond doubt that the field of flexible high and ultra-high frequency rectifiers and electronics as a whole will continue to be an active area of research over the coming years.

Herein (PLAGH)2[ZnCl4] (PLAGH? = pyridoxalaminoguanidinium cation) isintroduced as a new electron injecting layer for efficient polymer light emitting diodesbased on the green-emitting copolymer poly[(9,9-dioctylfluorenyl-2,7-diyl)-co-(1,4-benzo-2,10,3-thiadiazole)] (F8BT). The device structure is glass/ITO/PEDOT:PSS/F8BT/(PLAGH)2[ZnCl4]/Al, where (PLAGH)2[ZnCl4] was deposited from its water/methanolsolution via spin-coating. In particular, it was found that the incorporation of(PLAGH)2[ZnCl4] at the polymer/Al interface improved the luminous efficiency of thedevice (from 2.6 to 3.32 cd/A) and reduced the turn-on voltage, whereas an up to threefoldincrease in brightness (*14,106 cd/m2 for (PLAGH)2[ZnCl4], as compared to *5850 cd/m2for the reference device) was observed after annealing at 110 8C.
