Organic transistors: a new function with self-assembled monolayers


Organic transistors are attracting much interest as possibly flexible, low-cost, and environmental friendly devices. We found that insersion of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) causes a change of carrier density in the conduction channel, and consequently enables us to control device characteristics. The result was published inadvanced on-line publication of Nature Materials Vol. 3 (2004) on April 4, as well as in newspapers of Asahi, Nikkan-kogyo, Nikkei-sangyo, and etc. on April 5.
