Deterministic assembly of ultrathin metal oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors released from the surfaces of bulk wafers with (111) orientation provides a route to high quality electronics on nearly any type of substrate. Device parameters and bias stability characteristics from transistors on sheets of plastic confirm the effectiveness of the approach and the critical roles of thermally grown layers of silicon dioxide for the gate dielectrics and passivation layers. Systematic studies of the anisotropic etching processes used to release the devices illustrate capabilities into the sub-micron thickness regime, with beneficial effects on the bending stiffness and degree of bendability.
