In this work, we have explored the effect of TIPSpentacene: polystyrene (PS) blend on electrical performance and photo-response of solution processed organic field-effect transistors (OFETs). It was observed that though the blend OFETs show better electrical performance, the photo-responsivity (R) of neat TIPS-pentacene OFETs was significantly better. This study was performed for different color lights such as blue, red, and green, as well as for ultraviolet light (UV). R was highest for blue color (~2600 mA/W for neat, ~230 mA/W for blend), and smaller for other cases. Low R value in blend devices is attributed to less trapping of photo-generated charge carriers during photo-illumination compared to their neat counterparts. © 2019 IEEE.
