In this work, we demonstrated a vertical organic transistor using air-stable material to exhibit good lifetime, good bias-stress reliability, and low operation voltage on a flexible plastic substrate in air ambient. With a synthesized NTz-based semiconducting polymer, the proposed space-charge-limited transistor (SCLT) delivers high on-off current ratio of 160000 and high output current density of 10 mA/cm2 at about 2 V. Without encapsulation, the proposed transistor keeps stable current-voltage relationship for 180 days and has only 0.1 V threshold voltage shift after 5000 s bias stress. No significant degradation can be observed after 1000-times bending and a maximum gain of 14 can be obtained when connecting the flexible transistor with a resistor to form an inverter.
