Organic thin film transistor (OTFT) performance has improved rapidly over the last several years and it now appears likely that OTFTs will find application in a variety of low-cost, large-area electronic applications. For displays, OTFT performance now rivals or exceeds the performance of amorphous silicon devices, and low OTFT process temperatures allow fabrication on a variety of materials including flexible polymeric substrates. We have fabricated pentacene OTFTs on flexible polymeric substrates with carrier field-effect mobility of 1 cm2/V-s, on/off current ratio > 108, and gate delay < 50 μsec for 8 V power supply. These results are the best reported to date for organic TFTs on polymeric substrates.
