High-performance organic field-effect transistor (OFET) memories were developed by a simple solution process using phosphorus-doped silicon nanoparticles (Si NPs) and dinaphtho[2,3-b:2',3'-f ]thieno[3,2-b]thiophene (DNTT) precursor-polystyrene (PS) blends. Si NPs were doped with phosphorus to control the ionization potential and functioned as a nano-floating gate. DNTT precursor-PS blends were converted to DNTT/PS layers on a Si NP layer by thermal annealing. The OFET memories clearly exhibited a memory window of 20V and a notably large threshold voltage (Vth) shift of 40Vafter the application of negative and positive voltages to the gate electrode.
