Examination for growth process of an organic thin film by In-Plane XRD

AppNote XRD2007: Examination for growth process of an organic thin film by In-Plane XRD


Among organic semiconductors used to produce TFT (thin film transistor), pentacene has attracted much attention because it has high carrier mobility approaching that of amorphous Si. However, controlling the crystal phase and molecular orientation in the pentacene thin film is essential to obtain target characteristics. In this report, we perform phase identification and evaluation of orientation of the pentacene molecule in thin films different in thickness.
