An organic nanotransistor using pentacene nanocrystals connected by multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNT) was fabricated. It was found that in the device fabrication, the evaporated pentacene selectively grew around the nanotube electrodes. The effect was caused by the common nanounit combination of the carbon six-membered ring contained in the pentacene and the nanotube. It was concluded that the nanotransistor showed controllable transistor operation at room temperature and coulomb blockade oscillations at 4.2 K in gate voltage characteristics.
