Physically-Based Compact Modelling of Organic Electronic Devices

Abstract : In spite of a remarkable improvement in the performance of organic electronic devices, there is still a lack of rigorous theoretical understanding on the device operation. This thesis is dedicated to establishing practical models of organic electronic devices with a full physical basis, namely a physically-based compact model. A physically-based compact model of a circuit element is a mathematical equation that describes the device operation, and is generally assessed by three criteria: whether it is sufficiently simple to be incorporated in circuit simulators, accurate to make the outcome of the simulators useful to circuit designers, and rigorous to capture physical phenomena occuring in the device. In this context, distinctive features of charge carrier injection and transport in organic semiconductors are incorporated in the models with a particular effort to maintain mathematical simplicity. The concomitant effect on the current-voltage characteristics of prototypical organic diodes and transistors are studied. Parameter extraction methods consistent to the models are presented which enable unambiguity determination of device parameters used for modeling device operation and assessing device performance and properties of organic thin-films and interfaces. The approaches encompass analytical developement of physical equations, two-dimensional numerical simulation based on finite-element method and experimental validation. The original and fully analytical compact models and parameter extraction methods provide fundamental understanding on how energetic disorder in an organic semiconductor thin-film, described by the Gaussian density of states, affects the observable current-voltage characteristics of the devices.Keywords : Organic electronics, device physics, analytical modeling, diodes, field-effect transistors, Gaussian density-of-states
