Pentacene ultra thin film transistors were exposed to water and operated with a conventional silicon/silicon oxide bottom gate and an electrolyte top gate controlled by a working electrode. The transistors are highly sensible (µV) to the electrochemical potential of the aqueous electrolyte. We show that dual gate operation permits the measurement of the double layercapacitance,CDL  = 14.6 µF/cm2. The device exhibits a fast (4.6 ms) and stable response, without bias stress as opposed to conventional bottom gate operations, when controlled with the electrolyte gate. These features make the device a promising candidate for potentiometric transducers required for non-invasive electrophysiology.
