Abstract

The rich phase behavior of 5,11-bis(triethylsilylethynyl) anthradithiophene (TES ADT) - one of the most promising, solution-processable small-molecular organic semiconductors - is analyzed, revealing the highest performing polymorph among four solid-state phases, opening pathways toward the reliable fabrication of high-performance bottom-gate/bottom-contact transistors.
