19_05b/2009Thin-Film Transistors: Transparent Photo-Stable Complementary Inverter with an Organic/Inorganic Nanohybrid Dielectric Layer (Adv. Funct. Mater. 5/2009)

On page 726, Minsuk Oh and co-workers describe the fabrication of a transparent complementary thin-film transistor inverter with a ZnO top gate and bottom gate of pentacene channels. Twelve nanometer-thin organic–inorganic hybrid dielectric layers with high capacitance are adopted to allow the ZnO and pentacene transistors to operate under only 3 V, and the inverter action appears very stable even under a few mW of white light. This discovery could herald the arrival of a new type of transparent logic device.
