Preface to Electrical Characterization of Organic Electronic Materials
This e book is the abstract of greater than a decade of investigation of natural digital supplies and gadgets carried out on the Optoelectronics Laboratory on the College of The Algarve.
It’s by no means a abstract of the literature, although an in depth choice of references is included.
(It ought to be made clear from the start that by mentioning a paper within the literature doesn’t suggest that I approve of its contents, agree with its conclusions,
and even advocate its studying, nor that I totally understood its message; it solely serves the aim of mentioning works on the topic and provides a attainable start line for readers.
Some of the papers, particularly within the introductory elements, I’ve to confess, I didn’t even learn completely myself; the checklist of citations on the finish is thus a combination of references and bibliography.)
Each time an idea of electrical habits got here up, I attempted to know it by making calculations, or, extra usually, by making simulations, till the habits was in-line with how I understood issues to work.
Usually my understanding of issues was incorrect and it needed to be modified to be in-line with simulation and ends in our laboratory and outcomes introduced within the literature.
Even whereas penning this e book, I modified my considering considerably in some locations, displaying that the educational curve is infinite. It additionally exhibits that, most likely, this e book remains to be full of errors and misconceptions. It’s to be thought-about, nonetheless, an unfinished work.
It ought to due to this fact not be seen as an absolute e book, believing every part with out questioning.
It ought to relatively be seen as a piece to stimulate considering and to assist the scientist on the way in which with correct instruments.
I additionally undergo from the fixed must not solely perceive issues, however to additionally make the outline so simple as attainable, to strip away all of the unneeded elaborations, and to cut back it to its vital core.
Whereas clearly lacking out on some descriptive energy of the concepts, the achieve of hopefully making it attainable for a lot of extra folks to know compensates sufficient.
In my view, it isn’t the duty of a scientist to know nature, it’s relatively to mannequin it and clarify it to others in order that they will perceive it and additional construct on it.
If not, all gained data will likely be misplaced on the finish of the profession of the scientist. By no means, in any case, did I assume issues to be right within the literature and simply conveniently reference them away when encountering comparable habits in our supplies and gadgets.
A large number of papers exist which can be far past my grasp. After some failed makes an attempt, I ignored these papers (some of them are nonetheless talked about on this e book, so that you could have a look your self).
Essentially the most exceptional end result of this method might be the outline, from the origin, of the thin-film transistor with, as closing end-product, a predicted and carried out transistor primarily based on a metallic because the lively layer.
Trying again at it, I now think about it one thing utterly trivial and anticipated. Most individuals will most likely agree that it’s trivial.
Nonetheless, the identical reasoning additionally led to the correct description of the contact results, one thing that conflicts with a big quantity of papers within the literature.
It at all times gave me immense pleasure to work on the topic and to understand that, in spite of everything, nature is a captivating complicated world, however when persisting, even for a humble and ignorant human being, it’s attainable to know some issues. Then, the wonder lies in its simplicity.
As a single start line, I used the thought ‘Assume as an electron’; when considering as an electron, the remainder will comply with. In case of doubt it’s best to ask ‘What would I do if I have been an electron?’ That is humorous, in a means, however in lots of instances very useful. This work, of course, wouldn’t have come about with out the assistance of different folks.
Most vital on this respect is Henrique Gomes, my colleague on the Optoelectronics Laboratory.
Generally, by simply saying a pair of phrases, he pointed the way in which to a greater understanding of issues, issues that might generally take me months and even years to determine in all their myriad implications.
Likewise, the feedback and statement of Martin Taylor have been extraordinarily useful. The discussions with Adriano Benvenho have been at all times a very good inspiration for lots of the work. I additionally thank him for proofreading this e book.
My college students Nelson Pimenta and Jose Almada are thanked for implementing ´ the transistor admittance spectroscopy system described in Chapter 6.
I hope this textual content is useful to you, the reader, too. In spite of everything, that’s the intention of this work.
