We report a flexible carbon nanotube (CNT) thin-film transistor (TFT) fabricated solely by ink-jet printing technology. The TFT is top gate configured, consisting of source and drain electrodes, a carrier transport layer based on an ultrapure, high-density (≫1000 CNTs/μm2) CNT thin film, an ion-gel gate dielectric layer, and a poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) top gate electrode. All the TFT elements are ink-jet printed at room temperature on a polyimide substrate without involving any photolithography patterning or surface pretreatment steps. This CNT-TFT exhibits a high operating frequency of over 5 GHz and an on-off ratio of over 100. Such an all-ink-jet-printed process eliminates the need for lithography, vacuum processing, and metallization procedures and thus provides a promising technology for low-cost, high-throughput fabrication of large-area high-speed flexible electronic circuits on virtually any desired flexible substrate.
