The first all-organic electronic device to boast the same characteristics as silicon-based ones is reported. Not only does the use of an organic insulating layer result in an increased charge-carrier mobility in the semiconductor, but it also imparts a flexible quality to the whole device which allows it to be rolled up, bent or twisted without reducing performance. The organic-based devices also show remarkable tolerance towards moisture and impurities, production being possible in the normal laboratory environment.
