Organic Transistors: High Performance Field-Effect Ammonia Sensors Based on a Structured Ultrathin Organic Semiconductor Film (Adv. Mater. 25/2013)

Authors


Abstract

Gas sensors based on organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) may enable a broad range of monitoring applications. Growth of ultrathin and microstructured organic semiconductor film is an efficient way to realize high performance OFET-based sensors. On page 3419, Lifeng Chi, Klaus Müllen and co-workers demonstrate high performance OFET-based ammonia sensors with ultrathin (4-6 molecular layers) dendritic organic semiconductor microstripes prepared via dip-coating.
