We have examined the device characteristics of solution-processed single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) transistors. By using an electrical breakdown, SWNT-field-effect transistors (FETs) exhibited an on/off ratio (Ion/Ioff) of 104 and a field-effect mobility of 3.6 cm2 V-1 s-1 in air, which are comparable to those of other organic FETs. We investigated the detailed mechanism of carrier injection from electrode metals into SWNTs. From the temperature dependence of source–drain current, we evaluated the effective Schottky barrier height for holes to be 170 meV.
