Paper Abstract

Recently it has been discovered that some types of liquid crystals exhibit fast electronic conduction, whose carrier transport properties are characterized by high mobility over 10-2cm2Vs independent of electric field and temperature. Theses materials feature crystal-like self- organizing molecular alignment and liquid-like fluidity, providing us with a good basis of the excellent photo- electrical properties and large-are uniformity for practical application. The general aspects of carrier transport properties in the present materials, which we call Self- organizing molecular semiconductors, are reviewed on the basis of our experimental results on the smectic liquid crystals and discus their high potential as a new type of organic semiconductors.
