Organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) have attracted intensive attention for potential applications in flexible displays, low-cost electronic papers, RFID components, and smart textiles, as well as smart memory/sensor elements in the automotive and transportation industries.
 
During the past recent years, we have developed a simple [X+1+Y] one-pot synthetic route for DTT (dithenothiopehene), TTA (tetrathienoacene), and PTA (pentathieno- thiophene) syntheses. A couple new derivatives based on these fused-thiophenes have been developed. In 2014, we have reported stable soluble benzothienodithiophene (BTDT)-based materials with 0.65 cm2/Vs mobility via solution process (in AFM). New developed benzothienothiophene (BTT) showed 0.34 cm2/Vs mobility and asymmetric DTTs exhibited single crystal mobility of 0.7 cm2/V.
 
For p-types, we have developed two new soluble small molesules which exhibited mobilities up to 1.7 and 1.8 cm2/Vs via solution process recently and a couple new p-type small molecules exhibited 0.1~ 0.7 cm2/Vs mobilities. For n-types, new TTAs exhibited mobility up to 0.43 cm2/Vs (vacuum deposition) had been published (AEM 2015). Soluble TTA-based materials have exhibited mobilities up to 0.8 cm2/Vs via solution shearing (Chem Euro J. submitted)
 
Markedly, these new developed soluble fused-thiophenes can also be applied in OPV and 2PA. We have published three OPV papers. For example, our TTA-based OPV small molecules has exhibited 4% of PCE. Furthermore, we have developed new OPV polymer with ~ 7% PCE (unfinished). For 2PA, we also published three papers of fused-thiophene based small molecules with 2500~3000 GM.
 
 
Finally, the newly developed fused-thiophenes offer good building blocks for new DSSCs. Our new developed organic dyes have exhibited PCE upto 10.1%, which is the currently best PCE record in Taiwan, just published in JACS 2015. Recently, we have modified our best dye and 11.2% PCE has been achieved (paper submitted). In addition, a couple of new organic dyes based on our new developed core with 8.5~10.2% PCE have been obtained.
