Low-voltage graphene field-effect transistors based on octadecylphosphonic acid modified solution-processed high-k dielectrics.Nanotechnology. 2014 Jul 04; 25(26):265201.N
In this study, a solution-processed bilayer high-k dielectric (Al2O(y)/TiO(x), abbrev. as ATO) was used to realize the low-voltage operation of graphene field-effect transistors (GFETs), in which the graphene was grown by atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition (APCVD). Upon modifying the interface between graphene and the dielectric by octadecylphosphonic acid (ODPA), outstanding room-temperature hole mobility up to 5805 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1) and electron mobility of 3232 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1) were obtained in a small gate voltage range from -3.0 V to 3.0 V under a vacuum. Meanwhile, an excellent on/off current ratio of about 8 was achieved. Our studies demonstrate an effective route in which utilizing the low-temperature solution-processed dielectrics can achieve low-voltage and high performance GFETs.
