Abstract

A method of sample assembly for four-probe resistivity measurements on fragile organic single crystals using a diamond anvil cell is presented. A procedure to keep insulation between the metal gasket and four leads of thin gold wires bonded to the sample crystal by gold paint is described in detail. The resistivity measurements performed on a single crystal of an organic semiconductor and that of neutral molecules up to 15 GPa and down to 4.2 K showed that this new procedure of four-probe diamond anvil resistivity measurements enables us to obtain sufficiently accurate resistivity data of organic crystals.
