A solution processable method for employing single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) as bottom contact source/drain electrodes for a significant reduction of contact resistance in poly(3,3-didodecylquarterthiophene) based organic field effect transistors (OFETs) is proposed. A two order of magnitude reduction in contact resistance and up to a threefold improvement in field effect mobilities were observed in SWCNT contacted OFETs as opposed to similar devices with gold source/drain electrodes. Based on Kelvin probe measurements, this improvement was attributed to a reduction in the Schottky barrier for hole injection into organic semiconductor.
