Performance of thin film transistor (TFT) whose channel is fabricated by using a solution process of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) has been studied. SWCNT solution is prepared by using 9,9-dioctyfluorenyl-2,7-diyl- bipyridine (PFO-BPy) copolymer as solubilizer. Over 4 decades' on/off ratio is obtained by using drop-coating at room temperature without any further optimization. Other solubilizers are chosen as control groups to measure the on/off ratio of SWCNT TFT to investigate effects of the use of PFO-BPy. Results suggest that thick SWCNT network should be uniformly established at the channel region and the channel is required to be formed with well-separated SWCNTs.
