Text provides information about advanced OTFT (Organic thin film transistor) structures, their modeling and extraction of performance parameters, materials of individual layers, their molecular structures, basics of pi-conjugated semiconducting materials and their properties, OTFT charge transport phenomena and fabrication techniques. It includes applications of OTFTs such as single and dual gate OTFT based inverter circuits along with bootstrap techniques, SRAM cell designs based on different material and circuit configurations, light emitting diodes (LEDs). Besides this, application of dual gate OTFT in the logic gate, shift register, Flip-Flop, counter circuits will be included as well.


"The book covers both the fundamental aspects of the operating principles of organic electronic devices, as well as their applications in digital circuit design. The book is written in an attractive textbook format with problems at the end of each chapter making the book suitable as a textbook in both undergraduate and graduate level courses. This book will be an excellent addition to university library collections."
