Organic large area electronics have the potential to enable fully flexible applications. This requires efficient transistors on flexible substrates as well as capacitors, inductors, and resistors to complete an electrical circuit.
We operate Organic Permeable Base
Transistors (OPBT) on polymer substrates to combine impressive
transistor characteristics, facile manufacturing techniques and
mechanical flexibility. Large current densities and on/off-ratios are
achieved with simple shadow mask structuring well known from OLED
technology. Currently our flexible devices reach on/off-ratios
exceeding 106 and current densities above 1 A/cm².
