An organic electrochemical transistor operates in accumulation mode with high transconductance. The channel comprises a thiophene-based conjugated polyelectrolyte, which is p-type doped by anions injected from a liquid electrolyte upon the application of a gate voltage. The use of ethylene glycol as a co-solvent dramatically improves the transconductance and the temporal response of the transistors.
Keywords: accumulation; conjugated polyelectrolytes; electrochemical; transconductance; transistors.
