A replacement for gold as the hole-injecting metal in organic electronic devices is presented: patterned graphene electrodes prepared from graphite oxide sheets by oxygen plasma etching. Solution-processed organic FETs with poly(3-hexylthiophene) as the semiconductor and these graphene electrodes are shown to perform as well as or even better than devices with gold contacts.
