- We report on fabrication and electrical characteristics of high-mobility field-effect transistors (FETs) using ZnO nanorods. For FET fabrications, single-crystal ZnO nanorods were prepared using catalyst-free metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy. Although typical ZnO nanorod FETs exhibited good electrical characteristics, with a transconductance of similar to140 nS and a mobility of 75 cm(2)/V s, the device characteristics were significantly improved by coating a polyimide thin layer on the nanorod surface, exhibiting a large turn-ON/OFF ratio of 10(4)-10(5), a high transconductance of 1.9 muS, and high electron mobility above 1000 cm(2)/V s. The role of the polymer coating in the enhancement of the devices is also discussed. (C) 2004 American Institute of Physics.
