Integrating electronic devices with unconventional substrate has been a popular research direction. Among these substrates, cellulose fiber paper has advantages in low-cost, recyclable and bio-degradable. We demonstrated directing printing of all contact electrodes on standard untreated Fuji Xerox printer paper without using planarization layer. The screen-printed gate electrodes based on silver nanoparticles can smooth out the paper substrate surface by two orders of magnitude and allow us to

The low leakage current allows us to demonstrate memory properties by employing the floated gate method. The devices show excellent memory retention time for more than 10,000 s. The unique flexibility and combustibility of the organic transistors on paper substrate manifest their applications as next generation of green electronics. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V.
