Abstract

Polymorphism control of organic semiconductor films greatly affects optoelectronic device performance. The thin-film phase is always the dominant phase in the early growth of pentacene films; however, the performance of the bulk phase is superior to that of the thin-film phase. In the present study, a nanoimprinted polyimide layer is used to induce the growth of the bulk phase in the early stage. The bulk phase appears in the initial few layers and its dominance of the polymorphisms in the pentacene film increases with increasing thickness. The mechanism of the phase transformation is explained.
