Recently, a lot of interest has been generated in the area of Macroelectronics with applications such as displays, chemical/biological sensors, photovoltaics and power electronics. Nanobundle network transistors (NBTs) have emerged as a viable, higher performance alternative to poly-silicon and organic transistors for these applications. Several experimental groups are coming up with a lot of experimental data but there is no theoretical model to explain these recent experiments.
In the paper we develop the analytical models for the NBTs with channel length less that the tube length (for sub-percolating networks) and use it to explain some of the recent findings in the experiments by Infineon Technology. We also develop a numerical model for transistors with channel length greater than tube length based on percolation theory solving Poisson and Drift diffusion equation self consistently.
