A “hybrid” structure based on organic (p-type) and inorganic (n-type) single crystalline nanoribbons was introduced for the fabrication of organic bipolar field-effect transistors and inverters. The devices were fabricated based on individual organic single crystalline nanoribbon of copper phthalocyanine as p-channel and individual inorganic single crystalline nanoribbon of zinc oxide as n-channel. All transistors exhibited high performance and nice bipolar behavior with hole mobility up to ∼0.62 cm2/V s. With the integration of n- and p- transistors together organic single crystalline complementary inverters were fabricated. The maximum gain of the inverters reached 29. The high performance of the transistors and inverters indicated the potential application of the hybrid structure and nanoribbon crystals for organic electronics.

    High-power characteristics have been investigated for GaN/InGaN double heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) on SiC substrates. A base-collector diode showed a high breakdown voltage exceeding 50 V, which is ascribed to a wide band gap of a GaN collector. The maximum collector current is...
