A polymer matrix filled with nanoparticles, used as the gate material, makes solution-processable, low-voltage, organic transistors possible. The device shown here operates at very low voltages (see Figure). Atomic force microscopy shows a relatively homogeneous film, even with a high filling of nanoparticles.
