The Electrode's Effect on the Stability of Organic Transistors and Circuits.
Summary of "The Electrode's Effect on the Stability of Organic Transistors and Circuits."
A new understanding and a promising solution for the stability of organic transistors and circuits are presented. The electrodes are demonstrated to play an unexpectedly important role on the device stability. Au electrodes exert a detrimental effect on the device stability, while the overall device stability of p-/n-type transistors and complementary inverter circuits is improved significantly by using conducting polypyrrole (PPY) electrodes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
Regulatory Sequences, Ribonucleic Acid
Sequences within RNA that regulate the processing, stability (RNA STABILITY) or translation (TRANSLATION, GENETIC) of RNA.
Volatile Organic Compounds
Organic compounds that have a relatively high VAPOR PRESSURE at room temperature.
