We report on the fabrication of crystalline nanoribbon network field effect transistors(FETs) using low molecular weight poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) with different surface treatments and compare with thin filmFETs cast from the same regioregular P3HT. NanoribbonFET shows improved performance with a maximum mobility of and current on/off ratios of due to unique crystalline structure and morphology. With various surface treatments, the nanoribbonFETs show less variation in devicemobilities, while thin filmFETs show more than ten times variation in devicemobilities and up to 100 times change in current on/off ratios.
