ORGANIC THIN-FILM TRANSISTORS
Supported by IEEE journals
This report discusses the salient features and a method of fabrication of organic thin film transistors (OTFT) and non-volatile memory devices which form the basis of transparent and flexible electronic devices. The memory device is based on OTFTs by incorporating self-assembled gold nanoparticles in the organic dielectric layers as charge storage elements.The organic memory devices could be electrically programmed and erased, showed long term data retention and stable cyclic bending tests confirming that the devices exhibited good electrical reliability and mechanical stability. Therefore this approach could potentially be applied to advanced transparent and flexible electronic devices.
