The electronic charge transport in active layer of organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) based on conductor polythiophene (sexithiophene (6T) and octithiophene (8T)) was studied. A mathematical model is presented based on the variable range hopping (VRH) transport theory. Using the VRH model the expression of source-drain current is established for two regimes: linear regime for drain bias VD = −2 V and saturation regime for VD = −30 V at low temperature and at room temperature. All electrical key parameters of OTFTs based on polythiophene have been extracted. A good agreement between theoretical model and experimental measurement of electrical characteristics is obtained for both temperature ranges: low temperature and room temperature.
