SmartKem’s Semiconductor Materials Attain Better Performance than Amorphous Silicon

Developer of ink formulations and organic semiconductor materials, SmartKem announced that its sophisticated semiconductor materials have attained a better performance than amorphous-silicon in a recently conducted test. They also attained a high TFT mobility rating than conventional organic materials.

The test, which was conducted by the National Printable Electronics Technology Centre (PETEC) in the United Kingdom, included the company’s semiconductors into versatile TFT panels. The semiconductor’s performance was evaluated by utilizing an array of test techniques. The materials attained a substantial rise in TFT mobility across an array of transistor geometries. They obtained an average mobility of 4cm2 at a channel length of 30 µm over a range of devices.

The test results have shown that the semiconductor materials are aligned with the future and existing performance needs of printable transistors. This enables in implementing versatile drive electronics for a number of applications such as OLED, HD-LCD, and ePaper.

SmartKem’s Chief Executive Officer, Steve Kelly stated that the company is pleased that the semiconductor materials have delivered better performance than amorphous-silicon. Kelly added that the materials have the ability to provide a significant breakthrough for developing advanced printable transistors.
