Paper Abstract

We report the electrical transport properties of a hybrid organic/inorganic diode device consisting of a layer of an organic ferrimagnetic semiconductor V[TCNE]x (x~2, TCNE: tetracyanoethylene; TC ~ 400 K, EG ~ 0.5 eV, σ~ 10-2 S/cm) and a GaAs/AlGaAs p-i-n diode. Comparison with a control excluding the V[TCNE]x~2 reveals that the addition of the V[TCNE]x~2 layer shifts the turn-on voltage and ideality of the diode in accordance with bulk V[TCNE]x~2 properties. This result has implications for the use of inorganic systems as probes of spin physics in organic and molecular systems.
