- Organic semiconductors have shown promising potentials in flexible electronics. Because the materials can be directly fabricated on flexible plastic substrates at low temperatures, researchers envision development of novel flexible applications, such as flexible displays, flexible circuits, and conformal sensors. In order to develop these practical devices, organic transistor technologies should provide reliable fabrication processes and mature techniques to control the electrical characteristics of each device. In this dissertation, I will discuss several methods to overcome these issues. First, I have demonstrated high-capacitance gate dielectric using atomic layer deposition. This low-temperature process was used to fabricate low-voltage and high-performance flexible organic transistors and inverters. I will also present controlling current-voltage characteristics of organic transistors from the device physics point of view.
