Organic Electrochemical Transistors

27 Mar 2018

Organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) leverage ion injection from an electrolyte into an organic semiconductor film to yield compelling advances in biological interfacing, printed logic circuitry and neuromorphic devices. Their defining characteristic is the coupling between electronic and ionic charges within the volume of an organic film. In this review we discuss the mechanism of operation and the materials that are being used, overview the various form factors, fabrication technologies and proposed applications, and take a critical look at the future of OECT research and development.
