Isothermal structure development in submicron P3HT layers studied by fast scanning chip calorimetry N. Van den Brande, G. Van Assche, B. Van Mele


  • Isothermal crystallization kinetics were studied using fast scanning chip calorimetry.
  • A methodology to perform these measurements on sub-micron layers was developed.
  • PBT was chosen as a test system, with success.
  • The method was applied to P3HT.
  • The bell-shaped crystallization rate curve was constructed between 360 K and 450 K.
