    Submicron-channel-length organic thin-film transistors

    Organic thin-film transistors (TFTs) can typically be fabricated at temperatures below 150 °C and thus not only on glass, but also on unconventional substrates, such as plastics and paper. This makes organic TFTs potentially useful for flexible, large-area electronics applications, such as rollable or foldable displays and conformable sensor arrays. In some of the more advanced applications envisioned for organic TFTs, the TFTs have to control electrical signals of a few volts at frequencies of several megahertz. The first requirement for achieving high switching frequencies is efficient charge transport in the semiconductor, which can be met by choosing organic semiconductors that provide good molecular ordering and large carrier mobilities. The second and more critical requirement is a small channel length. To meet this requirement, we have developed a process in which the TFTs are patterned using high-resolution silicon stencil masks. With this process, bottom-gate, top-contact organic TFTs with a channel length as small as 300 nm can be fabricated. For 11- stage complementary and unipolar ring oscillators based on TFTs with a channel length of 1 μm, signal propagation delays per stage as short as 6.6 μs and 420 ns have been measured at a supply voltage of 3 V.
