The effect of channel resistance (RC) on the effective channel resistance (RCH) in organic field effect transistors was investigated. It was observed that for high gate voltage, the transistors operated in electron-enhancement mode and their performance was similar to a unipolar n-type transistor. It was also observed that at drain voltage of less than +2V an injection barrier existed which contributed to contact resistance. The analysis support printed circuit board drill analyzing microscope (PCBM) for application in organic complmentary-like technology.
