Controlled doping of semiconducting polymers by ion implantation

Protocols have been developed for ion implantation to give controlled p type and n type doping in thin films of solution processed semiconducting polymers. These techniques can be applied to the fabrication of thin film field effect transistors based on poly(phenylene vinylene). An assessment is being carried out of the structure and electronic structure of polymer films processed in this way.
