Abstract

The fabrication and electrical characteristics of high performance thin film transistors derived from printed and solution cast micro/nanoscale objects of single crystal silicon were discussed. These elements were fabricated from conventional bulk silicon substrates or from silicon-on-insulator wafers by patterning a layer of resist by soft lithography, anisotropically wet etching the exposed silicon and then lifting off the silicon. It was observed that the processing techniques enable extremely smooth, single crystal facets and uniform shapes. The results show that fabricating electrodes on top of these elements yield a type of thin film transistor that can have good electrical properties.
