Chemical versatility and compatibility with a vast array of processing techniques has led to the incorporation of organic semiconductors in various electronic and opto-electronic devices. One such device is the organic field-effect transistor (OFET). In this tutorial, we describe the structure, operation, and characterization of OFETs. Following a short historical perspective, we introduce the architectures possible for OFETs and then describe the device physics and the methods for extracting…
