Organic Thin-Film Transistors: Vibration-Assisted Crystallization Improves Organic/Dielectric Interface in Organic Thin-Film Transistors (Adv. Mater. 48/2013)




O. D. Jurchescu and co-workers demonstrate an improved performance in solution-deposited organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) on page 6956 through the use of a simple vibration-assisted crystallization. The performance of these OTFTs is comparable with that of singlecrystal transistors of the same material, and similar to that of the best recorded values for solution-processable organic semiconductors. It is easily scalable to large areas. The simplicity of this approach makes it easily transferable to other material systems and to the fabrication of other organic devices, such as organic photovoltaics, light-emitting diodes, and sensors.
