Fast and flexible phototransistor for bioelectronic devices
Organic electronics seems to be ideally suited as an interface with biology. Their soft mechanical properties can simulate biological structures, while their ability to conduct ions in addition to electrons and holes opens up a new communication channel with biology. Transistors, the devices that amplify or switch electronic signals on circuits, are key components of these systems. To date, researchers have not been able to build transistors that are fast enough for data processing. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska Curie programme, the LEAPh project will develop a novel phototransistor designed for high-speed switching applications. Project advances will promote the development and implementation of highly reliable noise-free organic bioelectronics devices.
