Infrared absorption induced by field effect from a metal-insulator- semiconductor diode with an Au/aluminum oxide/ regioregular poly(3- hexylthiophene) structure has been obtained by using a combination of infrared reflection-absorption spectroscopy and the FT-IR difference-spectrum method. The observed bands have been attributed to carriers (positive polarons) injected into the polymer layer and accumulated near the surface of the layer.
