Abstract

We demonstrate bottom-gate thin-film transistors (TFTs) based on solution-processed HgSe nanocrystals (NCs) on plastic substrates. Solid films made of spin-coated HgSe NCs were heated at a temperature of 150 °C for 15 min to maximize the magnitude of their current, and these films were utilized as the channel layers of TFTs. A representative TFT with a bottom-gate Al2O3 layer operated as a depletion-mode one with an n-channel, exhibiting a field effect mobility of 3.9 cm2/Vs and an on/off current ratio of about 102. In addition, the electrical characteristics of the TFT on bent substrates are briefly described.
