Abstract

An ionic circuit analogous to a traditional metal-oxide semiconductor was investigated, using 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium trifluoromethanesulfonate as the ionic liquid in the gating element. The circuit was observed to perform with comparatively high threshold and overdrive voltages in a region below the saturation current of the transistor. The concept of the design was successfully verified, although further improvements in electrode positioning and manufacturing precision are warranted.
