Chemical control of organic transistors      >> more >>

An image of an organic transistor made at the Institute of Solid State Physics, TU Graz appears on the inside cover of the July 7 issue of Advanced Materials. The image background shows an elemental map of a cross-section through an organic thin-film transistor containing a chemically reactive interfacial layer, as determined by energy-filtered transmission electron microscopy. The layout of the device (shown in the foreground) allows the realization of a transistor whose threshold voltage can be shifted by up to 60 volts upon exposure to ammonia switching its mode of operation from depletion to enhancement.
