A high resolution organic field effect transistor (OFET) fabrication process has been developed based on the selective laser sintering of ink-jet printed nanoparticle inks and the recent development of an air stable carboxylate-functionalized polythiophene semiconducting polymer. The entire fabrication and device characterization are performed at room temperature, ambient pressure, and air environment without using complex lithographic methods. This low temperature OFET fabrication process based on nanoparticle laser sintering has great potential for realizing inexpensive, large area flexible electronics on heat sensitive polymer substrates.
