Organic thin film transistors on shape memory polymers are fabricated by full photolithography. Devices show high mobility (0.2 cm2 V−1 s−1) and close to zero threshold voltage (-4.5 V) when characterized as fabricated. After 1, 10, and 100 deformation cycles and in a deformed, metastable shape memory transition state, changes in mobility and Vth are measured and indicate sustained device functionality.
