Paper Abstract

This paper demonstrates the use of DNA based biopolymers as semiconducting thin films in organic field effect transistors. The "doping" of the DNA molecules with conductive polymers leads to a significant decrease of the overall resistivity in the blend with effective free charge carrier mobilities comparable to other conductive polymers such as Pentacene and P3HT. Baytron P as well as single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) have been explored as "doping" conductive polymers.
