We report on organic n -channel field-effect transistors and circuits based on C60 films grown by hot wall epitaxy. Electron mobility is found to be dependent strongly on the substrate temperature during film growth and on the type of the gate dielectric employed. Top-contact transistors employing LiFAl electrodes and a polymer dielectric exhibit maximum electron mobility of 6 cm2 V s. When the same films are employed in bottom-contact transistors, using Si O2 as gate dielectric, mobility is reduced to 0.2 cm2 V s. By integrating several transistors we are able to fabricate high performance unipolar (n -channel) ring oscillators with stage delay of 2.3 μs.
