Abstract
we studied the mechanism of original n- and p-type "intrinsic" organic films 8-Hydroxyquinoline aluminum (Alq3) and N, N'-bis-1-naphthyl-N, N'-diphenyl-1, 1'-biphenyl-4, 4'-diamine (NPB) via using molybdenum trioxide (MoO3) as a p-type dopant. It is found that the conductivities extracted from "holes-only" devices both for Alq3 and NPB films are improved as a function of doping molar ratio (MR) of MoO3. However, the differences of change of conductivities in NPB films and Alq3 films after doping can be found, where (1) a rapid increase of conductivity in Alq3 with slope S>1 is shown in the entire MR range; (2) in NPB films, the conductivity changes with a slope of S>1 can be found in the low doping region (MR<~0.04) and a slope of ~1 can be found with MR>~0.04. According to these observation, we proposed that different distributions of occupied and unoccupied DOGS in energy gap of organic films is the origin of "intrinsic" n-/p- type organic films, and therefore can be passivated differently via MoO3. These findings suggest the effective way for improving free carriers concentrations by reducing DOGS in organic films.
