A study was conducted to demonstrate the first fabrication of thin-film transistors (TFT), using a solution-processed inorganic semiconductor combined with a solution-processed organic gate dielectric. It was found that the field-effect mobilities demonstrated in the study are as high as 57 cm 2V-1s-1, with large lon/l offratios and a subthreshold slopes as low as 0.26 V dec -1. The study also demonstrated that such performance parameters make these devices suitable for a wide range of applications. It was also demonstrated that TFT results represent a significant step in large-area electronics fabrication, considering the simplicity of the semiconductor and dielectric film deposition methods.
