Polarization and Carrier Transfer Characteristics at Metal/Organic Semiconductor Interface
The charge transfer and injection mechanisms at the metal/organic semiconductor interface have been investigated, but almost studies have explained existing material systems, and the transfer and injection of holes and electrons have been discussed separately. In this study, I aim to elucidate the correlation between the physical chemical structure of the molecular polarization and the electronic properties such as hole and electron transfer and injection. I try improving the charge transfer between metal and semiconductor by controlled molecular dipoles on the metal electrode surface.


I think it is interesting to try to control the "conductivity" at the metal/semiconductor interface with an "insulator" called a molecular dipole.
