ABSTRACT
Conductivity anisotropy in a crystal grain of thin-film-phase pentacene has been estimated by a combination of atomic-force-microscope potentiometry (AFMP) and electrostatic simulation. The surface potential distribution and topography of a grain in a working pentacene thin-film transistor are simultaneously measured by AFMP. Then, the nonlinear potential profile due to the thickness variation is simulated by changing the anisotropic ratio of conductivity. The anisotropic ratio (corresponding to the anisotropy of carrier drift mobility) is estimated to be σx:σz=45:1, where x is the horizontal (harmonic mean of those in a- and b-axes) direction and z is the vertical (c-axis) direction.
