      Fabrication, electrical and optical properties of silver, indium tin oxide (ITO), and indium zinc oxide (IZO) nanostructure arrays (Phys. Status Solidi A 5/2013)

      Nanostructured metal and transparent conducting oxide electrodes with controllable feature sizes are of major interest to various opto-electronic devices as they provide a larger interface for the energy transduction processes and nanoscale electronic confi nement resulting in tunable and often exotic optical and electrical properties. Khosroabadi et al. (pp. 831–838) have developed a versatile and powerful new method that enables the lithographic fabrication of nano-architectured ordered one-dimensional metal and metal-oxide electrodes. Optical band gap, electronic carrier concentrations and resistivity of these highly transparent electrodes can be tuned by simply changing the dimensions of the unit nanostructures. A series of samples of silver, pillar-shaped indium tin oxide and mitre-shaped indium zinc oxide one-dimensional nanoelectrodes were fabricated with controlled shapes and surface area enhancement factors up to ∼11 times. These samples were characterized by a number of complementary methods: optical absorption, transmission and refl ection spectroscopy, electrical resistivity measurements, high resolution SEM, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction were used to characterize both in-depth and lateral structure features, carrier concentrations and band gap values. Detailed fabrication methodology, electrical and optical properties of indium tin oxide, indium zinc oxide and silver electrodes are discussed.

      Routine fabrication of reduced graphene oxide microarray devices via all solution processing (Phys. Status Solidi A 5/2013)

      Ruben Lanche, Lotta E. Delle, Maryam Weil, Xuan Thang Vu, Vivek Pachauri, Walid M. Munief, Patrick Wagner and Sven Ingebrandt

      Article first published online: 17 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/pssa.201370021

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel all-solution processing method for the fabrication of graphene (reduced graphene oxide, r-GO) based devices is presented by Lanche et al. (pp. 968–974). As sensor platform, interdigitated gold electrodes forming microarray structures on glass and Si/SiO2 substrates are used. GO is site specifi cally deposited onto the microelectrode arrays by dielectrophoresis followed by an environmentally benign solution-based reduction of graphene oxide with L-ascorbic acid. In order to test the reduction process and the r-GO sensor's performance, impedance spectroscopy was used. The optimized all-solution processed fabrication provides an attractive fabrication route for robust r-GO microarray devices in a fl exible, scalable and cost-effective approach.

      Suppression of threshold voltage shifts in organic thin-film transistors with bilayer gate dielectrics (pages 839–844)

      Article first published online: 25 FEB 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/pssa.201228811

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In this study, bias stress effects are investigated in organic thin-film transistor devices with bilayer gate dielectric constructions consisting of two layers possessing opposite bias stress tendencies. These bias stress effects closely correlate with the thickness ratio of the two dielectric layers, such that threshold voltage shifts can be described as a linear function for the capacitive ratio of the two dielectric layers. A new method for almost completely suppressing the bias stress effects and providing long-term operational stability in organic thin-film transistors is also provided.
