Paper Abstract

We report solution-based processing of high-purity semiconducting carbon nanotube networks that has led to low-cost fabrication of large quantity of thin-film transistors (TFTs) with excellent yield and highly uniform, respectable performance on mechanically flexible substrates. Based on the semiconducting carbon nanotube TFTs, a wide range of macro-scale system-level electronics have been demonstrated including flexible integrated circuits, flexible full-color active-matrix organic light-emitting diode display, and smart interactive skin sensor that can simultaneously map and respond to the outside stimulus. Our work shows carbon nanotubes’ immense promise as a low-cost and scalable TFT technology for nonconventional electronic systems with excellent performances.
