description

Organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) have emerged as a promising new class of organic electronics with applications in chemical and biological sensing, bio-interfacing, printed electronics and neuromorphic computing. Unlike conventional organic field-effect transistors, the switching mechanism in OECTs is based upon a bulk electrochemical doping process that yields an exceptionally high channel conductance and transconductance. In addition to enabling many of the sensing applications for OECTs, the electrochemical switching mechanism provides a new handle for tuning the electrical behavior of organic electronics. In this presentation, I will discuss our work in using electrochemistry to tune the electrical properties of OECTs along with some of the applications for these new devices in printed electronics and chemical sensing.
