Fine-tuning the work function of the electrode is critical to enhance the carrier injection across semiconductor-electrode contact, improving the performance of devices.In this experiment, the work functions Au and indium-tin-oxide (ITO) can be modified by surface-electropolymerization using ethylenedioxythiophenes (EDOT) or its derivatives. The resulting work function is tunable by varying the electropolymerization condition. Furthermore, the diode devices with EDOT-COOH modified on ITO surface demonstrate the possibility of improving contact property in organic electronics. [5th Award]
