ABSTRACT: The properties of pentacene-based organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) with polymethylmetha-crylate (PMMA) as a dielectric layer have been investigated. The concentration of PMMA was about 8 wt % with toluene as solvent. The pentacene film on PMMA dielectric layer displays high thin film quality according to results of x-ray diffraction scan and atomic force microscopy. The crystalline size was about 33.96 nm and the grain size was about 1000–1500 nm . The pentacene-based OTFTs with PMMA as a dielectric layer exhibited excellent electric characteristics, including a high mobility of 0.241 cm <sup>2</sup>/ V s or larger, an on/off current ratio of 10<sup>4</sup> or larger, and the threshold voltage of less than -6.3 V .
