Advances in sample fabrication have allowed the fabrication of pentacene transistors with channel lengths down to 30 nm. The Figure shows a transistor with a channel length and width of 27 nm and 130 nm, respectively. Graceful scaling of the current–voltage characteristics as a function of channel length and width is demonstrated.
