Abstract

We reviewed recent advances in high-performance organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) based on organic semiconductor/insulator polymer blends. Fundamental aspects of phase separation in binary blends are discussed with special attention to phase-separated microstructures. Strategies for constructing semiconductor, semiconductor/dielectric, or semiconductor/passivation layers in OFETs by blending organic semiconductors with an insulating polymer are discussed. Representative studies that utilized such blended films in the following categories are covered: vertical phase-separation, processing additives, embedded semiconductor nanowires.
Keywords: organic transistor; organic semiconductor; polymer blends; phase-separation; semiconductor-insulator blends organic transistor; organic semiconductor; polymer blends; phase-separation; semiconductor-insulator blends
