We report the fabrication and electron transport investigation of individual local-gated single-walled carbon nanotube field effect transistors (SWNT-FET) with high yield using a semiconducting-rich carbon nanotube solution. The individual semiconducting nanotubes were assembled at the selected position of the circuit via dielectrophoresis. Detailed electron transport investigations on 70 devices show that 99% display good FET behavior, with an average threshold voltage of 1 V, subthreshold swing as low as 140 mV/dec, and on/off current ratio as high as 8 x 10(5). The high yield directed assembly of local-gated SWNT-FET will facilitate large scale fabrication of CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) compatible nanoelectronic devices.
