Abstract

In this work, we test graphene electrodes in nanometric channel n-type Organic Field Effect Transistors (OFETs) based on thermally evaporated thin films of the perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic acid diimide derivative. By a thorough comparison with short channel transistors made with reference gold electrodes, we found that the output characteristics of the graphene-based devices respond linearly to the applied bias, in contrast with the supralinear trend of gold-based transistors. Moreover, short channel effects are considerably suppressed in graphene electrode devices. More specifically, current on/off ratios independent of the channel length (L) and enhanced response for high longitudinal biases are demonstrated for L down to ∼140 nm. These results are rationalized taking into account the morphological and electronic characteristics of graphene, showing that the use of graphene electrodes may help to overcome the problem of Space Charge Limited Current in short channel OFETs.
