We report on high quality individual solution processed single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) field effect transistors assembled from a commercial surfactant free solution via dielectrophoresis. The devices show field effect mobilities up to 1380 cm2/V s and on-state conductance up to 6 μS. The mobility values are an order of magnitude improvement over previous solution processed SWNT devices and close to the theoretical limit. These results demonstrate that high quality SWNT devices can be obtained from solution processing and will have significant impact in high yield fabrication of SWNT nanoelectronic devices.
