The charge carrier transport efficiency and issues of patterning in organic semiconductors limit the potential range of microelectronic and optoelectronic applications of organic devices in nanoscale. We demonstrate high-performance organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) with a mobility of approximately 2.5 cm2 /V s using nanogroove gate-dielectrics formed by nanoimprinting. The preferred flow of charge carriers in OFETs parallel to the nanogrooves yields a high mobility anisotropic ratio (above 220), providing a built-in autopattern organic semiconductor function with nanoscale resolution. This nanostructure embedded device has great potential for use in the manufacture and lithography-free patterning of organic semiconductor films in integrated circuits.
