The contact resistance limits the down-scaling and operating range of OFETs. With the monolayer (1L) organic crystals and non-destructive metal/semiconductor interfaces, intrinsic mobility of 12.5 cm2V-1s-1and Ohmic contact resistance of 40 Ω·cm were achieved. The on/off ratio maintained at 103even at a small VDSof -0.1 mV. The high current density of 4.2 μA/μm was achieved with the 1L-crystal as the active layer. At such high current density, the velocity saturation and channel self-heating effects are observed in OFETs for the first time. The findings suggested other than the low contact resistance and high-resolution lithography, thermal management in the high mobility OFETs is also critical for the further development of high-speed densely integrated flexible electronics.
