All solution processed ambipolar bulk heterojunction organic field effect transistors were fabricated using Au and Al as hole and electron injection contacts to study both types of charge carrier mobilities in a single device. Poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and [6,6]-phenyl C61 butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) were mixed with different ratios. Well balanced electron and hole mobilities were obtained at 1:0.3 ratio. Organic solar cells with the same ratio yielded draft enhancement in device performance parameters, indicating optimized carrier transport in the bulk of solar cell devices.
