The electrical transport properties of short-channel transistors based on single-walled carbon nanotubes (CNT) are significantly affected by bundling along with solution processing. We report that especially high off currents of CNT transistors are not only related to the incorporation of metallic CNTs but also to the incorporation of CNT bundles. By applying device passivation with poly(4-vinylpyridine), the impact of CNT bundling on the device performance can be strongly reduced due to increased gate efficiency as well as reduced oxygen and water-induced p-type doping, boosting essential field-effect transistor performance parameters by several orders of magnitude. Moreover, this passivation approach allows the hysteresis and threshold voltage of CNT transistors to be tuned.
