ABSTRACT
Charge injection at metal/organic interfaces dictates the performance, lifetime, and stability of organic electronic devices. We demonstrate that interface dipole theory, originally developed to describe Schottky contacts at metal/semiconductor interfaces, can also accurately describe the injection barriers in real organic electronic devices. It is found that theoretically predicted hole injection barriers for various archetype metal/organic and metal/oxide/organic structures are in excellent agreement with values extracted from experimental transport measurements. Injection barriers at metal/organic and metal/oxide/organic interfaces can therefore be accurately predicted based on the knowledge of only a few fundamental material properties of the oxide and organic layers.

    In most previous reports on Al-gated n-GaN/SiO2 metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) structures, the work-function difference between A1 and n-GaN (φms) has been chosen as 0 V by assuming that the work function of the A1 gate and n-GaN are both 4.1 eV. In this letter, φms is determined as...

    Despite the importance of interface dipole on the charge carrier injection at metal/organic contacts, there is yet no estimation of the various contributions to the overall dipole. We propose a simple approach to delineate and estimate the contribution of metal-induced interface states (MISs)...
