We report on the fabrication and performance of vacuum-processed organic field effect transistors utilizing evaporated low-density polyethylene (LD-PE) as a dielectric layer. With C-60 as the organic semiconductor, we demonstrate low operating voltage transistors with field effect mobilities in excess of 4 cm(2)/Vs. Devices with pentacene showed a mobility of 0.16 cm(2)/Vs. Devices using tyrian Purple as semiconductor show low-voltage ambipolar operation with equal electron and hole mobilities of similar to 0.3 cm(2)/Vs. These devices demonstrate low hysteresis and operational stability over at least several months. Grazing-angle infrared spectroscopy of evaporated thin films shows that the structure of the polyethylene is similar to solution-cast films. We report also on the morphological and dielectric properties of these films. Our experiments demonstrate that polyethylene is a stable dielectric supporting both hole and electron channels.

In this study the effects of compatibilizer type, organoclay type, and the addition order of components on the morphological, thermal, mechanical and flow properties of ternary nanocomposites based on low density polyethylene, LDPE were investigated. As compatibilizer, ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate, ethylene/glycidyl methacrylate, and ethylene/butyl acrylate/maleic anhydride; as organoclay Cloisite? 15A, Cloisite? 25A and Cloisite? 30B were used. All samples were prepared by a co-rotating t...

The effects of polyethylene, (PE), type, compatibilizer type and organoclay type on the morphology, rheological, thermal, and mechanical properties of ternary low density polyethylene (LDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE), and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), matrix nanocomposites were investigated in this study. Ethylene – Methyl acrylate – Glycidyl methacrylate terpolymer (E-MAGMA) and Ethylene – Butyl acrylate- Maleic anhydrate terpolymer (E-BA-MAH) were used as the compatibilizers. The organo...
Photoconductivity of P3HT films measured by time-resolved THz spectroscopy
Esentürk, Okan; Heilweil, Edwin J. (Optical Society of America (OSA); 2007-01-01)
Photoconductivities of P3HT polymer films varying in molecular weight were directly measured and compared using optical pump-THz probe spectroscopy. Conductivities of P3HT polymers depend on the polymer length, ring orientation regularity and film morphology. © 2007 Optical Society of America.

We report the surface modification of chitosan/poly(ethylene glycol) (chitosan/PEG) hydrogel materials via layer-by-layer (LbL) technique using stimuli-responsive polymers. Water-soluble complexes of Tannic Acid (TA) and a broad-spectrum antibiotic, Ciprofloxacin (Cipro) were prepared and co-assembled at the surface of Chitosan/PEG hydrogels with poly(N-vinyl caprolactam) (PVCL). Compared to the bare hydrogels, the surface spreading and proliferation of human fibroblasts were significantly enhanced on preca...

In the first part of this work, the structural and thermal characteristics of polyacrylonitrile, polyacrylonitrile films treated under the electrolysis conditions in the absence of thiophene, polythiophene and the mechanical mixture and a conducting copolymer of polyacrylonitrile/polythiophene have been studied by pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique. The thermal degradation of polyacrylonitrile occurs in three steps; evolution of HCN, monomer, low molecular weight oligomers due to random chain cleavages a...
