We show herein fabrication and field-modulated thermopower for KTaO 3 single-crystal based field-effect transistors (FETs). The KTaO 3 FET exhibits field-effect mobility of ∼8 cm2 V -1 s-1, which is ∼4 times larger than that of SrTiO3 FETs. The thermopower of the KTaO3 FET decreased from 600 to 220 μVK-1 by the application of gate electric field up to 1.5MVcm-1, ∼400 μVK-1 below that of an SrTiO3 FET, clearly reflecting the smaller carrier effective mass of KTaO3.
