Abstract

Flexible electronics with high-performance devices is crucial for transformative advances in several emerging and traditional applications. To address this need, herein we present p-type silicon (Si) nanoribbons (NR)-based high-performance field-effect transistors (FETs) developed using innovative Direct Roll Transfer Stamping (DRTS) process. First, ultrathin Si NRs (~70 nm) are obtained from silicon on insulator (SOI) wafers using conventional top-down method, and then DRTS method is employed to directly place the NRs onto flexible substrates at room temperature (RT). The NRFETs are then developed following RT fabrication process which include deposition of high-quality SiNx dielectric. The fabricated p-channel transistors demonstrate high linear mobility ~100±10 cm2/Vs, current on/off ratio >10^4, and low gate leakage (<1nA). Further, the transistors showed robust device performance under mechanical bending and at wide temperature range (15 to 90 °C), showing excellent potential for futuristic high-performance flexible electronic devices/circuits.
