This organic transistor is robust under high temperature medical sterilization processes. The high thermal stability of the gate layer was confirmed by a cooperative structural analysis using a synchrotron radiation beam at Brookhaven National Laboratory’s (BNL) Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS).
Manufacturing of a flexible transistor on a bio- compatible polymeric film is not too difficult. For practical implementation, however, high temperature stability and low operating voltages are challenging problems with the best match of its softness and bio-compatibility.
The international research team has succeeded in manufacturing an organic transistor on a polymeric film that has a high thermal stability up to 150°C or higher and the low driving voltage of 2 V with high mobility of 1.2 cm2V−1s−1 at the same time. The new type organic transistor can be sterilized in a standard sterilization process (150°C heat treatment).
The key technology to realize the heat resistant organic transistor with low driving voltage is the development of a new insulating film comprising an ultra-thin (--2 nm) and densely packed layer named self-assembled monolayer (SAM).
Research team seems to expect such applications as long implantable devices and some medical devices like a smart catheter, and thin film medical sensors.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
