Abstract
In this paper, we present a device model of the charge distribution and the contact resistance in organic thin film transistor (OTFTs) in which the active layers are made of octithiophene. In this model we suppose that the current in organic semiconductors is only carried by injected carriers from the electrodes and an analytical formulation for the charge distribution inside the organic layer was derived.
