Hybrid organic-inorganic semiconducting interfaces have attracted attention in photodiodes and field-effect transistors (FETs) due to the realization of intrinsic p-n junctions and their mechanical flexibility. Organic copolymers based on diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) cores have also gained significant interest for application in FETs because of their high p-type carrier mobilities as well as high power conversion efficiencies in solar cell structures. In addition, grazing-incidence x-ray diffraction (GIXRD) reveals crystalline stability of phenyl-capped DPP-based monomers [1]. With the difficulty of developing high-mobility n-type organic semiconductors due to the necessity of low LUMO levels and ambient environment stability, solution processable inorganic materials are an excellent alternative. ZnO is an intrinsic n-type semiconductor which is non-toxic and sol-gel processable, creating avenues for film patterning [2] and fully solution processed devices. These ZnO films are also able to be easily treated, reducing lattice defects through UV-Ozone processing. This decreases the dark current and increases responsivity in hybrid photodetectors and yields improved electrical performance in FETs. Additionally, cross-sectional electron microscopy techniques reveal hidden characteristics within the morphologies of the films and provide insight as to how processing conditions impact FET and photodiode operation.
