Organic devices get back on track

Physicists in the Netherlands have built organic single-crystal field-effect transistors with electron mobilities that are higher than the best thin-film devices made from the same material. Teun Klapwijk and colleagues at Delft University of Technology developed a new technique that allows them to attach single crystals of tetracene - a molecule that contains four linked carbon rings - onto a silica without damaging the crystals.
