Let's hope that they can give it a bit of shrink too!

Georgia Tech is concentrating on low-voltage operaton and longevity right now, but I am sure that shrinkage is also on their agenda of improvements.

I don't think they need to be so small, you are not going to make an ASIC or microprocessor out of them ;-)...they need decent performance though...dr Kris

Yeah, I agree, the advantages for polymer based transistors are flexibility, transparency, low temperature processiblity, ink-jet printability, and so on, not the smallness.

I have been involved in this type of printable transistor research in the past and the big hurdle was always the electron mobility of the printable semiconductor materials.

To @CowboyCeltic and others who worked on these type materials: how low is electron mobility? is 10% of crystalline silicon achievable? Kris
