Organic thin-film transistors have been fabricated using laser-induced forward transfer as spatially resolved laser-printing method. Using this technique, source and drain electrodes were deposited from silver nanoparticle ink and the copper phthalocyanine (CuPc) was used to form the active layer. Both kinds of materials were transferred from a donor substrate onto a receiver substrate upon irradiation with laser pulses in the picosecond regime. The latter substrate formed the gate and the dielectric of the transistor. Electrical characterizations showed that the transistors are fully operative, showing well-defined linear and saturation regimes in the I-V curves.
