Gate-voltage dependent Hall coefficient RH is measured in high-mobility field-effect transistors of solution-crystallized and vapor-deposited 2,7-dioctylbenzomieno[3,2-b]benzothiophene. The value of R H evolves with density of accumulated charge Q, precisely satisfying the free-electron formula RH = 1/ Q near room temperature. The result indicates that the intrinsic charge transport inside the grains is band-like in me high-mobility organic-semiconductor thin films that are of significant interest in industry. At lower temperatures, even Hall-effect mobility averaged over the whole polycrystalline film decreases due to the presence of carrier-trapping levels at me grain boundaries, while me free-electron-like transport is preserved in me grains. With the separated description of me inter- and intra-grain charge transport, it is demonstrated that the reduction of mobility with decreasing temperature often shown in organic thin-film transistors does not necessarily mean mere hopping transport.
