ABSTRACT
CeO2–SiO2 nanocomposite films were used as the gate dielectrics in organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) with pentacene active semiconductor. CeO2–SiO2 composite films exhibited a high dielectric capacitance of 57 nF/cm2 with exceptionally low leakage current. Good device characteristics were obtained with saturation at low operating voltages (∼2 V) and with a field effect mobility of 0.84 cm2 V-1 s-1, a threshold voltage of ∼0.25 V, an on/off current ratio of 103, and a subthreshold slope of 0.3 V/decade, whereas the gate leakage current density is considerably lowered. These results should therefore increase the prospects of using OTFTs in low power applications such as portable devices.
