We herein report ambipolar organic field-effect transistors based on rubrene single crystals. The transistors operate in both the p - and n -channel regimes depending upon the bias conditions. Hole and electron mobilities of 1.8 and 1.1× 10-2 cm2 V s, respectively, were derived from saturated currents. The appearance of an electron enhancement mode in single crystals of wide-band-gap semiconductors (∼2.6 eV) is ascribed to the reduction of electron traps at the semiconductor-dielectric interface using a hydroxyl-free gate dielectric.
