Abstract [en]

A novel transducer concept based on an organic electrochemical transistor is described. Its function as an integral part of an air humidity sensor, in which the proton conductor Nafion acts as sensitivity layer has been realised. The resulting electrochemical sensor–transistor, based on the conducting polymer PEDOT:PSS, operates at low voltages, on the order of 1 V. The sensor response, measured as the drain–source current of the electrochemical transistor, versus air humidity, has a close to exponential behaviour. The sensor can be realised using exclusively printing and coating fabrication techniques. Here, we demonstrate devices realised on plastic foils and on ordinary coated fine paper substrates. This organic electrochemical transducer promise future applications such as all-integrated low-cost sensor tags for single-use chemical sensors.

Abstract [en]

Conducting polymers entered the research field in late 70´s and efforts aimed at achieving printed electronics started a decade later. This thesis treats printable organic electrochemical transistors (OECT). Some conjugated polymers can be switched between a high conducting and a low conducting state in an electrochemical cell. In this thesis, the work carried out using poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) as the active material in an electrochemical transistor is reported. The electrochemical transistors, presented, can be designed into a bi-stable and dynamic mode of operation. These transistors operates at voltages below 2V and current on/off ratios are typically 5000, but 105 have been reached. The transistor device can be built up from all-organic materials using common printing techniques such as with screen-printing. The bi-stable transistor can be combined with an electrochromic (EC) display cell to form a smart pixel circuit. Combining several of these smart pixels yield an actively addressed cross-point matrix display. From this an all-organic active matrix display printable on paper has been achieved. The OECT, combined with a resistor network was successfully used in inverter and logic circuits.

One important feature of these organic electrochemical devices is that both ions and electrons are used as the charge (signal) carriers. This is of particular interest and importance for chemical sensors. By combining a proton-conducting electrolyte (Nafion®) that changes its conductivity upon exposure to humidity, a simple OECT humidity sensor was achieved. This proves the use of this OECT as the ion-to-electron transducer.
