No. 155: High-performance organic material transistor with five times higher motion speed (September 6, 2010)
A research team led by an Osaka University professor and a Hiroshima University professor developed a high-performance transistor using organic materials. The newly developed transistor can move about five times faster than the existing silicon transistor. The research team designed a new technology that can process on the thin film of the single-crystal structure where an electron can easily move using the organic material developed by Hiroshima University that allows for high-speed motion. The trial product allows an electron to move 10 times faster than the traditional organic transistor. Because it is possible to print the circuit pattern only by applying the organic solution to the base plate, the technology is applicable to mass production. The team will collaborate with companies to build liquid crystal display based on this new technology and study problems with the practical application. It plans to advance the research to develop bendable electronic paper by combining the technology with the electro luminescence display equipment.
