Caption: This image shows fabricating single crystal organic field-effect transistors using ultra-thin polymer membrane for a gate insulator. In the upper row, the membrane is stretched over the transistor before vacuum is applied. In the lower row, the vacuum has been applied and the membrane is adhering to the organic crystal. Photos on the right are close-up views of the transistor, with the organic semiconductor crystal in red.
