A 270nm thick Al2O3+x gate dielectric deposited on indium tin oxide glass was used to construct the pentacene-based organic thin-film transistors (OTFT). Two different deposition techniques, traditional thermal evaporation (TE) and energetic cluster evaporation (ECE), were used for the investigation. The TE-depsoited pentacene channel appeared superior to the ECE-deposited pentacene in regard to hole mobility and crystallinity. However, the ECE-prepared OTFT show a threshold voltage shift which is more prominent with proper chemical treatment on the surface of Al2O3+x gate oxide.
