Interface engineering of molecular charge storage dielectric layers fo organic thin-film memory transistors

Artoem Khassanov, Thomas Schmaltz, Hans-Georg Steinrück, Andreas Magerl, Andreas Hirsch, and Marcus Halik. Abstract Mixed self-assembled monolayers of C60-functionalized and different long-chained insulating phosphonic acids provide molecular scale non-volatile memory dielectrics for low-voltage organic thin-film transistors. The memory retention depends on the insulation of the C60 moiety and can be improved by embedding into the […]

Study ofWet Surface Activation Routes to Enable the Deposition of Monomolecular Organic Thin Films on k 2.0 Porous Dielectrics

S. Armini, J. Loyo Prado, M. Krishtab, T. Conard, J. Meersschaut, Q. T. Le, P. Verdonck, and M. R. Baklanov Abstract This paper explores the effects of different wet surface treatments on low dielectric constant (low-k) materials and the consequences for the growth behavior of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) from 11-cyanoundecyltrichlorosilane precursor on these modified substrates.
