Short-channel, high-mobility organic filed-effect transistors (OFETs) are developed based on single crystals gated with short-channel air gaps. The high hole mobility of 10 cm2/Vs for rubrene, and high electron mobility of 4 cm2/Vs for PDIF-CN2 crystals are demonstrated even with a short channel length of 6 μm. Such performance is due to low contact resistance in these devices estimated to be as low as ∼0.5 kΩ cm at gate voltage of −4 V for rubrene. With the benefit of the short channel length of 4.5 μm in a new device architecture with less parasitic capacitance, the cutoff frequency of the rubrene air–gap device was estimated to be as high as 25 MHz for drain voltage of −15 V, which is the fastest reported for p-type OFETs, operating in ambient conditions.
